NEW YORK — A huge rat was found in rapper Jay-Z’s previous home of Marcy Projects in Brooklyn. There has been a picture circulating of Housing Authority worker Jose Rivera, with a huge rat on a pitchfork, which he claims he killed the rat with.
The cat sized rat was spotted around the projects for years, according to residents.
The New York Daily News Reports:
Naomi Colon, head of the Marcy Houses Tenant Association, said there have been sightings of the outsize rat for at least six years.
“The residents have told me that they’ve seen it running around with other rats. She lived with them. She ran into the same hole they ran in.”
Animal experts who viewed the picture identified the animal as a Gambian pouched rat, which is a fairly common pet rat.
