WATCH: Keep your eyes peeled when sledding down a hill, you never know when a rat will try and cross your path.

With snow covering much of B.C.’s South Coast, many people — and at least one rodent — have headed to the hills to enjoy a little tobogganing.

Some sledders were making their way down Ryan Street hill in Victoria Tuesday afternoon when they collided with a large rat that came running into their path.

Seventeen-year-old Cole Salsman captured the rat’s journey on his GoPro camera.

Salsman was barrelling down the hill, asking “We hitting the ramp, boys?”

Other sledders screamed as the rodent scurried away, presumably unharmed.
