Abandoned cruise ship filled with cannibal rats headed for British shore
The Lyubov Orlova has been detected off the coast of Scotland. Its only passengers are demented, disease-ridden rats feeding off each other.
An abandoned cruise liner teeming with inbred cannibal rats is adrift in the Atlantic Ocean and possibly about to run aground on Britains coastline, according to a new report.
The Lyubov Orlova has been drifting east from Canadian waters since last year.
Newly detected beacons off the dilapidated vessels rescue boats indicate it is was recently off the west coast of Scotland, raising concerns it could run ashore there, along the west coast of Ireland or the southern tip of England, according to The Sun.
Salvage hunters are keen to find the dilapidated 300-foot ghost ship that can carry 110 passengers because it is estimated to be worth nearly $1 million.
But once aboard, the scrappers will face unimaginable horror: a demented, disease-ridden population of rats that have been feeding on each other and breeding.
"There will be a lot of rats, and they eat each other, Belgian-based salvage hunter Pim de Rhoodes told the tabloid. If I get aboard, I'll have to lace everywhere with poison."
The ship was built in 1976 and primarily toured Antarctic waters. It was abandoned in a Canadian harbor in Sept. 2010 by its indebted owners.
In January of last year it was sold to the Dominican Republic for scrap, but the tow line broke while en route. After harnessing the ship again, the Canadian government elected to cut it loose in international waters, saying it posed no threat to other vessels or offshore oil drilling platforms.

This ship sounds perfect for a new addition to Carnival Cruise Lines.
If I recall correctly, this rodent represents Hollywood.
Who says poetic justice is dead?
This would make for a good horror movie
if the rats are only eating each other and breeding.... wouldn’t the population be decreasing??
doesn’t look so bad in that pic
Salvage rights! But before you board—take a troop of Rat Terriors.
Tell me this is photoshopped. I remember him as ugly and with huge nostrils but not this HUGE!
Old hulks aren’t a treasure. The ship is almost 50 years old. It was up for sale for four million before it was eventually sold for $275,000. latching onto a drifting ship with no onboard help is a dangerous operation. I’m not surprised the Canadians said f**k it.
The US if the productive decide to go Galt.
Demented? This is a gratuitous insult to disease-ridden inbred cannibal rats everywhere.
Who is Br’er Rabbit? :p
Target practice for any interested navy. A few well-placed 3 inch rounds would sink her.
Make a nice yacht for a Saudi Prince.
"We be a rat pirate ship now mate"
We're changing her name to the Jolly Barry O'Ratfink, arg".
It sounds sturdy from the point of surviving abandonment. The diesel engines have almost 50 years of wear. With their money, the Saudis can afford new and all the latest gadgets. I wasn’t impressed by the bridge.
“I would have given this cruise a five-star rating but for the poor performance of our demented, disease-ridden cannibal rat room steward, Ben. I had specifically asked him to deliver hot tea to the cabin every day at exactly three pm. It was always lukewarm. He always had some excuse about dodging the other cannibal rats and how this slowed him down. I told him that was unacceptable. The Bentley-Smythes remarked at the Captain’s table the night before we disembarked that their demented, disease-ridden cannibal rat room steward even made towel animals for their room! And Ben couldn’t even get us hot tea. Well, needless to say, Ben didn’t get much of a tip.”
>> “Why cant they just bomb it and sink it?” <<
It’s worth a ton of money, why sink it?
It could easily be fumigated and put to profitable use.
