A giant rat terrorized a Swedish family for days before being caught by an industrial-sized trap.  The family suspected that there was a mouse in their kitchen until they saw their cat flee from the giant rodent.  A giant "Viking rat" measuring 15 inches without its tail, had chewed through their wall and into the kitchen. Despite the family's attempts to scare it away, it only grew braver and began making its way into the kitchen from its comfortable hiding spot behind the dishwasher.   Exterminators were eventually called in, but their giant traps were no match for the rodent.  After getting caught in one, he merely ran off with it hanging from his neck.  He eventually got caught underneath a planter and choked to death.  (Daily Mail)
