    drown them, rats cannot swim, they drown. put them in a bucket, a deep one, and fill it half way, so they cant crawl out. they will drown.

    I would not do anything cruel to it...is there a field nearby you could release it? Or, you can drop it off at a local veterinarian/pet store to kill it humanely. Another idea would be to put it in an old pillowcase and wack it against a hard surface as hard as you can...one time should do the trick and the rat won't even know what hit it.

    Dropping boiling water on it would be a horrific death for the rat...have some compassion...even though it is a rat, it can still feel pain the exact same way you can.

    What kind of trap is it in that it is still alive???

    You need those traps that whack them good and dead-they look like a giant mouse trap.

    Then just toss them in the garbage. Or mail it to the person who said to release it again.....LOL

    It is best to kill it right away or else it will cry for help and you will be attacked by more rats. Pour boiling water will make it cry for help. So, better drown it right away.

    Take care and GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!!!
