39.5 inch rat found in Sweden family's home

NASHVILLE (WZTV/WACH)-- Imagine seeing this scurrying around your kitchen floor. That's exactly what happened to a family in Sweden.

A rat measuring 39.5 inches from nose to the end of it's tail was captured behind the family's dishwasher.

Exterminators placed a massive trap in the home and were shocked to see the entire thing missing.

The trap had snapped onto the rodent's neck, but it was strong enough to walk away with it attached to it's neck. It wasn't until the trap chocked the rat to death that exterminators were able to see just how big it really was.
