A 3-month old baby was eaten alive by a giant rat in South Africa. Daily Mail News reports that the 26-year-old mother of the baby went out to a night party, leaving the baby in the house alone. Lots of people in South Africa’s township area of Katlehong, Johannesburg, have blamed the mother for her leaving the baby all by itself.
A neighbour who spoke on an anonymous basis said, “The baby could only have died a painful death. The infant’s tongue, eyes and fingers had all been eaten. Besides the missing body parts, the remains of her body had bites and wounds all over that were inflicted by the sharp teeth of the rats. This woman must rot in jail. She does not deserve to be a mother.” Noluthando Mtshali, the daughter to the careless mother’s landlord said the party mum only cares about having fun. A witness confirmed that this is not the first time the woman would be leaving her children all alone. Luckily, only one of her twin fell victim to the attack by the giant rodents. The issue of giant rats eating humans is not new in the neighbourhood. An elderly woman named Nomathemba Joyi, had her face eaten by giant rats while she was asleep at her home.
