A ghost ship filled with cannibal rats is heading to the shores of Britain, this is the latest report on the Lyubov Orlova. This unmanned ship has been adrift on the high seas for over a year. According to Metro on Jan. 23, the Russian ship, which is named after an actress, has been floating aimlessly in the North Atlantic since the beginning of 2013.

The ship was being towed to the Dominican Republic to scrap when the tow line broke in high seas. Another ship towed it out to sea and cut it loose under the orders of the Canadian government. The ship, which was built in 1976 is believed to be full of rats that have resorted to eating one another for lack of food. This is why they are being called cannibal rats today.

Weather experts believe that the North Atlantic currents and the recent big storms would have put the ship on a slow, but steady course with Britain's shores. This is not a welcome sight for any country to have bearing down on them!

What now sounds like a science fiction movie is headed toward the shore of England, which is a ghost ship infested with cannibal rats. The ship was spotted of the coast of Ireland about 1,300 nautical miles from the Irish shore and it is likely that the 4, 250-ton vessel is still afloat. The ship is big enough to weather the big storms of the North Atlantic.

Whoever boards that ship will have to spray it full of rat poisoning first, as the cannibal rats sound aggressive!
