The hungry rodent was filmed in Tankersley, South Yorkshire, and is seen carrying the cardboard box which is roughly the same size as him.
In the video, with the burger box between his teeth, the clever rat even manages to negotiate a sidewalk while dragging junk food.
Trucker Chris, who filmed the video, said that before the rat took the box from McDonald’s, a crow had already been on the crate sucking up leftover fries.
The video has racked up an incredible 3 million views on TikTok since its publication.

While eslin1500 said, “Doesn’t he know McDonald’s delivers. “
This is not the first time that a voracious rodent has gone viral. In 2018, a rat in New York City was spotted bringing home a takeout treat after grabbing a huge slice of pizza between his teeth.
And last year, McDonald’s fans were “adorable” when a hungry rat looted a whole sausage and egg McMuffin and rushed into a New York subway.
