When Shi Beidan spotted a rat the size of a small dog scuttling across her kitchen floor, the last thing she wanted to do was call in the exterminators.
Instead she caught the rodent, gave it a lunch of bamboo and put it in a box to breed more.
She now has more than 2,000 giant bamboo rats at her home in Congjiang, in southwest China's Guizhou Province, all of which she is fattening up to sell at market.
