Gross! Fat Rat Stuck In Cement Crack

Warning: This video is not for those who are squeamish or have a serious fear of the nasty, beady-eyed alley dwellers. The person who posted this video last November wrote that her landlady put some cement in the cracks of her stairs, and it looks like this fat rat didn't make it the whole way out. Before you watch, know that this rat is dead. We hate rats, too, but this is a bit much, and we wouldn't want to spend this much time with a rat corpse.
