    VA. Folks flush with Rat problem!

    FRONT ROYAL, Va (AP) — Two residents discovered dead rats in their toilets — and town officials say a nest in the sewer line could be the problem.

    On Monday, Lyndon Flood found a dead rat she described as "half the size of a cat" in her toilet.

    "I went in there to use the toilet. ... I can hardly talk about it," she said. "Could you imagine having a rat in your toilet while you're getting ready to go to the bathroom?"

    Betty Lamb said her daughter-in-law found a dead rat in the toilet last Wednesday. "She thought it was a joke we pulled on her," she said.

    George Shadman, Front Royal's director of public works, said sewer rats appear occasionally in the system.

    Especially ones that are "half the size of a cat"


    Gives a whole new meaning to the old movie line "You Dirty Rat"
