I'm so thankful that I don't have to put a rat on my grill for dinner.
A rat is roasted for a meal in Degholdong village, in the Baksa district of Assam state, India, March 14. Every year, a large portion of the crops is destroyed by rats. The rats sometimes weigh more than a kilogram and they eat everything that is fresh and green. Rat hunters who usually belong to 'Adivasi' or tribal communities. They hunt the rats at night by using indigenous traps locally called 'Sitap' and made out of bamboo, and an average hunt which lasts for two nights, yields ten to twenty kgs of rats.
