As if there's not enough to worry about in New York at the moment. :(

Years ago I worked at Ingalls shipyard and I saw rats that were big as cats. X-raying wells inside inter bottom of cargo vessels was spooky to say the least.

Sonna? I'm not entirely sure this thing can be Australian. If National Geographic and/or Discovery can be believed, every animal in Australia is ill tempered and venomous. This rat just appears to be ill tempered, though a pitchfork through the chest cavity might be enough to tilt anyone's temper towards "ill".

However, anything which carries an infectious disease called "monkeypox" should be killed with fire

It's really not that big. It's held out front close to the camera giving it an illusion. Look at the size of the manure fork compared to the person holding it. The width of the tines are almost as wide as he is tall..
