The Adventure of the Giant Rats and Horse Trailer
by John Strong
During the day I let my Giant Rats
(Capys) run free in the front of my horse trailer! (Or should I
say Jimmy Z's horse trailer). Anyway at the end of the day I put
them into a giant dog kennel.
To do this I scare them into the dog
kennel from the other side of the horse trailer! They are
smart and normally go right in! However two nights ago I was
putting them up when I thought both were in the Kennel? I
left the door open to the horse trailer and went to get my dwarf
little horse. When I got back a few mins. later one of the Capys
was out in the open out of the horse trailer and was standing
right in front of the trailer! I said Oh S#%T!
I took the kennel with the other Capy out of the front of the
trailer, and put it down along a fence behind the trailer. I was
thinking to my self, well at least I have one Capy left if I
can't catch the other one!! As soon as I said that to
myself, the one in the kennel pushed hard against the door of
the kennel and he too was loose! He jumped right through
the fence and went into some ones backyard!
I forgot about that one for the moment
and tried to catch the one that was along the fence? I
asked a few of the elephant guys to help and we were able to
scare the female Capy back into the kennel! I put her back
loose in the front of the horse trailer and went looking for her
I went around the front end of the
trailer and asked a few of the neighbors if they saw my "GIANT
100 pound RAT running around loose in their yard! One lady
ask is that what that animal swimming in our pool is? "I
was just going to call the police!" I said don't do that
but can you get on your bathing suit and dive into your pool and
scare that animal out of the water?
She said are you CRAZY?
Ok can I go into your pool and scare
him out? Be my guess she said! So I climbed down
into her pool and was able to catch that Capy as well!
So now it was time to return the Capy
to the kennel. I was about half way back to the trailer
with the Capy when he pushed the cage open again off he went.
I was able to corner him again along the wire fence. I was able
to catch him once more. I was tired, wet, and my heart was
pounding a mile a minute It was such a relief to have both
of my Capys I was so glad I was able to get my Capys
caged, safe and returned home. I really think these
animals are pretty cool.
