Very funny. Maybe they escaped due to the pressure building inside of them. Can you post a link in emglish or translate it?

Per a MSNBC.com article, they were MICE, not rats. Apparntly some jerk brought them on board, he put the bag with them in an overhead, then they escaped after the a/c reached crusing altitude. The article noted how the screams of the passangers was louder than the engines.
The man has been detained and a review of how security allowed the rodents to get by them is underway.

Problem can be solved easily if the "mice" are still onboard.

I know as a fact that when rodants are find on planes such as 3-4 times on a AA MD-82, the plane is filled up with some kind of gas that is deadly to rodants but not to humans. And after 45 minutes the gas has spread out and killed all rodants. The plane is then checked for another hour to find the bodies of the rodants and the problem is then solved!

There goes dinner!  vomit 

Must have been a big leather bag, with 80 of them inside. That moron could not imagine that rats chew through leather and that the conditions inside the bag gave them all the incentive to do that. Each if the rats certainly had a higher IQ than the guy carrying them on board.

80 lashes on the market place next Friday.

With that many onboard, one would think they'd want to get rid of them fast; no telling what they might start chewing through. 80 lashes indeed!

There is a difference in domesticated mice and rats vs those that are wild. Good grief...

While I never encountered a "bag of rats" in my years flying, I did encounter individual hedgehogs, snakes, kittens stuffed in coat pockets, dogs stuffed in coat pockets, chicks of some breed, crickets, "exotic" spiders, and more than I just can't think of at this moment. Oh..there was a goldfish in a ziplock bag once that passed away before we got to Atlanta.

People will try anything.

As a co-feature for the Snakes movie. As a sequel, they could have the snakes eat the rats and then the passenger. It would serve him right.
Now so, have ye time fer a pint?

The gas used is actually a common household product here in the US. It is highly effective, and I just used it myself in my house. You just have to make sure, before use, that all heat sources are turned off.

$15 bucks per application, and available at Bill Deal's Hardware on Main Street. Affordable and effective.

The Mythbusters showed why this is a darned good idea ... mind you, they needed about 30 cans of the stuff to reach the optimum mixture, but yes - the house WILL go boom.

As for rodents on planes, it can be a HUGE problem ... not just the extermination and cleaning, but then you have to check ALL the wiring in case the critters started chewing.

The overhead bins are not hermetically sealed. A mouse can pass through a gap of less than 1/4 of and inch.

You can hold them in your hand and they are as (or even more) tame than your house cat or dog.

I dont think there was ANY danger of anyone being bitten or attacked.  Yeah sure
