Lots of Rats!

After disposing of 39,650 rodents, a man from Bangladesh has been crowned a rat-killing champion and has been awarded a 14-inch Sony color television for his efforts. It took Binoy Kumar Karmakara one year to perform the daunting task and he used traps, poison and flooding to capture the animals. He also kept their tails so that he could keep count. Killing rats is a strategy that was launched by the government of Bangladesh because rats are responsible for the loss of about 10% of the country’s crops. Source

Wow, that's almost 3,000 rats per inch.

I wonder if this guy supplied the pelts for that model's, um, outfit in your previous post ...
