    Woman: Fiancé fed me rats

    Heather Brennan thought her fiancé, Travis Nickel, was a perfect match – until she learned he fed her rats,was engaged to another woman and had a child from a prior relationship, she alleges in a federal lawsuit.

    Her 10-month love affair with Nickel, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, ended after he left her in July, two weeks before their wedding, she said. Broken-hearted and broke, the jilted bride is seeking $125,000 to recoup cancelled wedding costs and other debts, as well as compensation for the “humiliation and mental anguish” she endured.

    The lawsuit, which Brennan prepared and filed herself in federal court in Scranton, accuses Nickel of a host of other misdeeds, including giving her the engagement ring that belonged to a different woman.

    Contacted by phone in Kentucky, where he now lives, Nickel, 26, denied most of Brennan’s allegations. He claims Brennan broke off their relationship after she learned he had a 6-year-old son who was previously unknown to him. He said the suit is simply a means to harass him.

    Brennan, 21, of George Avenue, insists she has evidence to support her claims – including the admittedly bizarre allegation that Nickel began mixing boiled, blended-up rats into her food some time after she moved to Arkansas with him in November 2004.

    In an interview Tuesday, Brennan conceded the allegation is strange. But she said doctors have told her eating rats can cause an illness similar to salmonella poisoning. Blood tests show irregularities that support her contentions she was fed the rodent

    The very thought of eating rats is sickening. It's a good thing she has medical proof, or it would be his word against hers.

    Do you think she will win this lawsuit? Some on the jury may think it is too bizarre to be true.

    I question just how conclusive those tests are and if anything else could cause it.


    I am not going to cast judgement on this guy just yet..

    And to think I was mad at my ex (then boyfriend) of feeding me deer meat. It was disguised as BBQ. ACK!! I had a problem eating it before I even knew what it was and just figured he wasn't a great cook or the meat was old. All of the guys in my family hunt and I just could never eat "wild" meat...still won't!


    I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.

    Yuck! He needs to be neutered IMO.

    Within the heart of every stray lies the singular desire to be loved. Please consider a shelter or rescue pet.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    It might be true......but then again even Peterson has supporters. We probably will never know the truth.
