A rat the size of a bulldog has been shot dead on a Bradford council estate. Word is, the creature - dubbed 'Ratzilla' by The Sun newspaper - could be descended from the coypu, a large rodent native to South America.
I'm sorry Bradford, but we've got a rat the size of a flat-coated retriever in The Enchanted Village. It's more like a capybara than a coypu. And it's getting bigger by the day.
Champagne-Charlie has been lying in wait for the monster from the safety of the garden shed while he keeps watch over the Sheepwash hens.
Mr Grigg and I dismissed the tale as something told by a big game hunter who's had one too many gins.
But C-C is adamant.
'It was about this long,' he said, doing an impersonation of a coarse fisherman who's narrowly missed landing a 5ft pike.
'Not only that, it had three little babies trailing in its wake.'
Not just a capybara, then, but a bloody pied piper.
That's about it.
