As per the title, just noticed a large, dead rat in the middle of the garden. I'm very squirmish and not sure what to do. So I am turning to GD. 1. Should I just leave it in the hope that local wildlife will dispose of it? 2. Man up and throw it in the bin? If so, which one; General Waste or Food waste? 3. Pick it up and sling it elsewhere? 4. Or leave it as it is and let it rot and decompose? 5. Let the dead rat own my garden and never go out there again? 6. Take GD's advice? For those who say "pics or it didn't happen." Spoiler: Dead Rat, RIP Dead Rat RIP, on Flickr Mods, if this image is too much please let me know I'll remove it.
