The mayor of French town Mont-de-Marsan forced himself to eat a rat after he lost a bet that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) would defeat Barcelona in the second leg of the 2017 Champions League round of last 16. Charles Dayot ambitiously declared he would eat a rat and “vote for (left-wing presidential candidate Jean-Luc) Melenchon” if PSG knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League. Unfortunately for Dayot, PSG lost the match 6-1. Dayot admitted he hadn’t carried out the second promise, but followed through on his vow to eat a rat at the town’s Fetes de la Madeleine festival, according to French media. A Facebook Live video broadcast to Mont-de-Marsan resident Stephane Coisy’s Facebook on July 23 shows Dayot digging into a rat’s tail and a bowl as he’s surrounded by throngs of people.
