Swarms Of Venomous Spiders Invade Town

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - An army of venomous spiders invaded a town in India, killing two people -- and scientists still don't know much about the arachnids or where they came from.

Like in a scene from the movie "Arachnophobia," droves of eight-legged pests invaded the town of Sadiya in May, during a Hindu festival. Witnesses said the creepy crawlies latched onto and bit anything that moved or breathed, according to The Times of India.

Doctors today are still trying to figure out what venom the spiders emit, but they do know that they killed two people -- a man, Purnakanta Buragohain, and an unidentified boy. They injured many others. Resident Jintu Gogoi told the paper that he spent a day in the hospital experiencing extreme pain and nausea over a mere finger bite. click here to read more
