A market stall was closed after a rat was filmed running around inside a bakery cabinet stuffed with cake and cookies.
Horrified onlookers can be heard gasping with shock as the huge rodent peruses the shelves of treats at the Buttercup Bakery at Lexington Market in Baltimore, Md.
Milton Mitchell shared the video on his Facebook account Thursday – prompting commenters to say they would never eat there again.
Afterwards, a Lexington Market spokesman said the Buttercup Bakery had been temporarily shuttered while pest controllers were brought in.
The statement said: ‘Buttercup Bakery in the East Market is temporarily closed.
‘This afternoon the Bakery discovered a rodent in its stall and the stall was immediately closed.
‘To address the situation, the Market’s pest control contractor will service the entire East Market tonight.
‘As always, the Market plans to take every necessary step to solve the problem.
‘Please check back for further updates.’
