And now..giant rats...well, that's just great.

Recommended Posts

I particularly like the images that went with the article. It makes it look like the rats are climbing on people and jumping out of trees, but I somehow suspect that it's not QUITE that bad yet. LOL

 

MikeE, it sounds like they are pretty copious breeders. You could probably get a nest of those going easier than rabbits, even, if you're looking for renewable protein sources!

One of the things I enjoyed the most in the late 70s was the reaction of all the Yanks to their first look at a real Texas sized RAT. When the auto industry tanked a lot of the skilled workers in Ohio and Michigan came to Texas to work in the oil industry. What we called a Texas sized rat usually ran about 25 lbs! They had never heard of such a thing and would doubt it until they saw one...then they would freak!!!

 

The fact is that the Texas sized rats were illegal immigrants like those Gambian rats. Our big rats are Nutria rats and they are fricking HUGE. Some dummy brought them here to eat the water hyacinths that some other dummy brought to decorate his oriental water garden. Now we have both an infestation of hyacinths AND giant rats... They are fun to hunt though and are actually good eating and wear a worthwhile pelt. I guess they are sorta like a beaver with a scaly rat like tail instead of a beaver tail.

I bet you could slow cook rats into some nice burrito filling, I have heard and seen shows about feral and invasive hogs being a major problem in the USA, if that's the case then why is bacon so expensive the last couple years. I'm kinda serious on this too, bacon used to be cheap, I don't think I have even had any like weeks, probably on the last burger I ate, ok so if you like burgers, what you need to be doin is ordering your burger med. rare (mmmm blood) with a fried egg, bacon, and cheese on there, I like lettuce as well but no pickles or tomatoes or any of that mess, maybe onion, and mayo should not even enter your mind, if you put mayo on my burger I don't like you. oh yeah, rats!

Feral hogs are serious business in the US, especially in the southern states. They destroy crops, kill livestock and pets (and occasionally people). In fact they are such a problem that you can kill them year round in Florida, using any method, and with no limit on the numbers you kill - you just have to report where you killed them and how big they were (so they can track the spread of the hog population).

 

I have personally seen an old hog that weighed more than 180 pounds, and had a hide so thick it had shotgun pellets and small caliber bullets lodged in it under the hair. It was killed by two point blank shotgun rounds to the head, after it got stuck under a heavy wire fence at a farm.

IIRC, the hogs were released by the Spanish in the 1500's to provide a continuous source of food for their exploration and colonization efforts. Looks like they knew their animal stock very well. Those hogs and the cattle that escaped and became Texas' Long Horns combined to feed a lot of the 1800's expansion.

 

It will prove to be amazing foresight on the part of the Spanish if their 16th century food preps keep us alive in the 21st century. I guess we truly never know the full extent of our preps on the future.

Hogs are a problem here in Texas as well, I have two friends that regularly want me to go and kill hogs on thier place.

 

They are going to become a larger problem <no joke intended> because someone broughts some Russian boars over here for some of the private game/hunt bussiness. Well hogs is smart and some of them got out. Russian boars are not like the hogs we have stateside...they are more like the ones you would read about in the middle ages, they are big...huge even.

 

If you haven't seen this you may want to read it...the shape of pigs to come...lol

Hell they're having a big hog killing tournament in Center Texas on April 11 through the 21 with some pretty nice prizes for the most killed and the biggest with daily pay outs and then a grand prize at the end. Them critters are a big nuisance and about the only good one is a dead one these days. Most people with dear leases feed them and then have a big killing in October to thin them out before deer season. Mixed with the deer they do make pretty good sausage. Most people trap them.

 

A few years ago a lady neighbor of mine had to kill three of them on her front porch so she could go to work. They were eating the dog's food and wouldn't move so she blasted them called her husband to come home and deal with it and then went to work.

 

I've had one neighbor chased into his pond when it was NOT pond swimming season at ALL and another put on the top of his truck. He said that if he had stopped to open the door they would have got him.

 

The introduction of the Russian boar blood into what HAD been just Piny Woods rooters has made it a lot more interesting but personally I've never had a problem with them. In both of the cases I mentioned above I think they were messing with a sow that had piglets. That is insanely stupid and to tell you the truth neither of those guys were rocket scientists.
