RAT ‘THE SIZE OF A JACK RUSSELL DOG’ FOUND IN TIPP

An American Swamp Rat the size of a Jack Russell dog is being rehabilitated in a Co Kildare animal sanctuary after being found in the wild.

Rodney is 3 feet long and weighs 6 kilos.

He was found in a swamp in Co Tipperary by a man walking his dog.

He is currently being cared for by Dan Donoher of the Kildare Animal Foundation – who says he’s a pretty chilled out rat, some of the time.

“He’s quite big, he’s bigger than a Jack Russell dog” she said.

“But he looks kind of like beavery looking”.

“In the pictures in The Sun he is very rat-looking, but you should see him in a video or real life – he looks like a beaver”.

“He’s not very friendly, he does kind of warn us often – but he doesn’t have much fear so he has been used to human contact at some stage” she added.
