WARNING: Video shows violence against a rat some people may find distressing
A video of rat running around a restaurant and jumping on a diner – before being pinned down with brooms and stamped on – has gone viral, and sparked an Environmental Health investigation.
The incident happened yesterday in a restaurant in Northern Ireland, where the rat ran amok and cilmbed up the leg of one horrified diner. Stephen Houston, 26, was out for a meal with friends in The Ramore restaurant in Portrush when the shocking incident happened.
The charity worker said he and pals had just ordered their meal and paid for it and sat down when they noticed some commotion in the corner of the restaurant.
