A Chinese restaurant has exterminated a large rat after a video of the rodent in the shopfront window went viral yesterday.
The family business in Minto, NSW, has reassured the community the rat’s appearance was a freak incident after a resident’s video was shared hundreds of times in the space of hours, reported the Macarthur Chronicle.
Restaurant owner Emily Tang said the rat likely rushed through the door from the street at the start of the day.
“I opened the door and it maybe came from the streets, trying to get into the kitchen,” she said.
“Every night we close the door, put down material at the door to stop the rats. We have never ever had any rats like this before.
“We called the pest control man straight away and got rid of the rat. We have always had a good record with the health inspector.”
