Woman Kills 14,000 Slugs in Her Garden

 

A woman in Gavle, Sweden has reportedly killed more than 14,000 Spanish slugs, also known as "killer slugs", which took over her garden.

"It all started three years ago -- and they ate everything. I began by taking them out of the garden but they just kept coming back, so I started to kill them," Hilkka Risberg reports.

The 65-year-old says she used a stick with a forked end to get rid of the slimy creatures. She kept a journal tallying her kills for each day.
