One of the more disgusting consequences of Hurricane Sandy hitting New York is an increase in rats!
After the hurricane hit and all that flooding happened, tons of rats moved inland.
It's gotten so bad that NYC officials are calling for a publicly financed program to bait, kill and remove the rats.

That thing is HUGE!!!
This guy has a pet Capybara, the world's largest rodent species.
It's basically a giant rat. A rat bigger than a dog. On his lap. Eating snacks, getting pet and loving every minute of it.
We're surprised at how cute we find this giant monster! LOLz!

What haven't we thought of this??
Over 150 stray cats have been drafted into a prestigious special ops unit the Chinese media has dubbed "The Cat Army."
From what we understand they're a lot like Seal Team 6 — only instead of destroy terrorists they're battling rats. LOL.
Yes, the rodent problem has become such a huge issue pasture lands Bole that the government has had to intervene.
The Huffington Post says that the cats were brought in, along with tons of poisonous rat pellets, and May from June that rat holes had decreased by more than half!!
We are totes impressed! 'Merica needs to get onto of this new military intelligence.

Run capybaras! They're coming to get you!
Officials in the Los Angeles town of Paso Robles will be setting up live traps for the world's large rodents. Capybaras aren't dangerous toward humans, but they are considered wild animals who can carry diseases.
Lt. Todd Tognazzini says:
"Like any wild animal, they’re going to defend themselves, so we wouldn’t want anybody to get close to it.
Somebody probably brought it in as a pet and they either got away or people couldn’t deal with it anymore."
The last capybara spotting was when a man saw the rodent while feeding his horses. The capybara ate some hay, then chased after his dog. He fired a shotgun at the animal to protect his dog and then called wildlife officials after it left the property. When wardens came out to his home, there were footprints at the scene, but no sight of the capybara.
We don't know what we'd do if we see one of these things go running by! They seem harmless, but it's probably for the best to get them under control before they do harm any house pets.
