It’s A Deer. It’s A Kangaroo. It’s . . . a Giant Rat!

By Scott Bestul

From Oregon’s KATU News:

MILWAUKIE, Ore. - A couple of Milwaukie High School students made a bizarre discovery on the way to school Tuesday morning.

Nicco Phillips and Lexi Eads found an exotic animal hopping around their neighborhood.

At first, they thought it was a little deer or maybe a small kangaroo but after making some calls, they found out it is actually a Patagonian Cavy, the world's fourth largest rodent.

Check out the great photos.

Surprised Al Gore didn't jump up and scream - it's Global Warming!!! It's Global Warming..!!!Anyhow - they taste good with chimichurri and cooked over an open pit fire (cherry wood) stuffed with argentine sausage, potatos and these little apple like things..... You need to sear it in a pan first with olive oil to lock in that juicy rodent flavor!!!
