Giant Rats Invade London Estate?

The headline screams: "Gang of monster rats 'the size of cats' found on housing estate by horrified pest controller."

The article has it wrong, and the pest controller is not very good at his job. From the picture alone, can you see the issue?

The newspaper later got the story right up to a point. They properly identify the source for the picture, but still misidentify the species.

The Daily Mirror is the print equivalent of Fox News - it wouldn't surprise me if someone won a bet about how gullible they are by spoofing this whole thing.

My Dad used to trap nutria in the creek behind his mobile home in Kerrville, Texas. "Big rats," he would call them.
