In a victory for all New Yorkers in the fight between humans and vermin, New York mayor Bill de Blasio put a horrifically huge rat thing to death with his bare hands in February.
The mayor was taking part in some sort of unspeakable pro-rodent ritual that required him to hold a giant version of the rats digging through your trash when he abruptly flipped the script and dashed the monster to the ground. It later succumbed to its injuries. For some reason his handlers did not announce his victory over this filth, choosing instead to keep it secret.
If you saw a creature like this outside, it would almost certainly be rabid, digging through your trash, or scratching children, and you would call someone to have it killed.
