nerves, rabbits do the same....

also, this vid shows you how badly overpopulated they become when they have food and shelter....

they can have a litter then within the month be pregnant with 14-21 young again :shock:

if a mother dies or cannot feed the young, other rats will help rear them....they are that succseful.

You have rats? Get a Jack Russell. It's quicker.

Those are very clean shots, the twitching is a normal nervous reaction.

FWIW, those Rats had zero awareness of the impact, and were dead before they realised it.


I can't stress enough that as a form of pest control, this is by far and away the most humane method when done properly (IMO, of course).

Jack Russell kills are neither stress-free, nor instantaneous.

I have a hatred of rats, so they can die quick or slow no preference my end. Just so long as they die.

Can't fault his aim, He's very good, but yes, i'm not comfortable with him enjoying it THAT much.
