OK, first we had the magic invisible penis, then we had the monkey witch.... now, it's giant rats. Giant rats killed two girls in two separate South African townships last week. An infant girl was killed in Soweto township near Johannesburg and a three-year-old girl was killed in the Khayelitsha slum outside Cape Town.
The suspects, African Giant Pouched Rats, are sub-Saharan African natives and the biggest of all rats in the world. They can grow up to three feet long and produce up to 50 young a year.
