Nasty lil' Creature...

Last Saturday we had some friends & family over to our home and we were visiting when we heard a loud bang type sound coming from outside it seemed. We looked and couldn’t see anything out of the norm so we excused it. Later after everyone had left Stacey went downstairs to watch some good ol’ TV. He started to get all situated and off to the side of the couch is the window. There were some major loud ruffling sounds coming from it. He ran upstairs and said, “Honey grab a flashlight & some shoes, something is in the window well.” So we went trotting outside to find this HUGE creature. Look at the size of that tail! I have never in my life seen a rat this big. YUCK. So we tried to get it out with a shovel and it was absolutely freaking out. It kept trying to dig his way out and such…his life ended when Stacey had no choice but to get his gun. Notice the nice carving of himself he left. Grrrr. A huge hole in the screen. So it must have been the rat falling in the window well that made the loud bang noise.
