one such charity is La Collina dei Conigli

these pics capture some of the animals ‘rescued’ by La Collina dei Conigli enjoying their first taste of a world outside of a lab –

Thirsty Rats

over 900,000 bottles of booze have been confiscated by police in Bihar after the Indian state went ‘dry’

of those 900,000+ bottles, a large number were apparently ‘destroyed’ (yeah, right) on the way to police stations, the rest being placed in police stores whilst awaiting disposal

however, it has come to light that a large quantity of bottles stored at the police stations has gone ‘missing’

a police spokesperson blamed the disappearance on rats

don’t go blaming us (hic). It wassh ratss wot done it (hic)

Rat Bites Man’s Penis

by duncanr

Me bad ?

True, the food’s lousy, and there’s a strong risk of catching an infection but at least when admitted to an NHS Hospital in the UK, you are unlikely to awake to find a rat nibbling on your penis !

53 yr old Arun Sandhukha was admitted to the SSKM Hospital in Kolkata suffering from pneumonia. When his family visited him they found him lying in a pool of blood – rats having bitten his penis.

He later died of his injuries.

Rat leaving No 10

by duncanr

There’s an old superstition that rats deserting a ship foretell disaster for that vessel.

Wonder if the same applies to rats scuttling away from No 10 Downing St, the home of David Cameron, the PM of the UK ?

[watch for the rat running behind the reporter’s back]
