: MediaTakeOut.com got ahold of a pic of a GIANT RAT . . . found inside the Marcy Projects in Brooklyn. Here's how our pals at the NY Daily News are reporting it:
And Rivera, 48, says it's not the only one. He insists that while he was filling a rat hole last week, three came running out - but he was only able to nail one.
"I hit it one time and it was still moving," Rivera said. "I hit it another time and that's when it died. I'm not scared of rats but I was scared of being bitten."
Naomi Colon, head of the Marcy Houses Tenant Association, said there have been sightings of the outsize rat for at least six years.
"The residents have told me that they've seen it running around with other rats. She lived with them. She ran into the same hole they ran in."
Animal experts who viewed the picture identified the animal as a Gambian pouched rat, which is a fairly common pet rat.
