Who Stole One of World’s Most Venomous Spiders From Philadelphia Insectarium?

  • Published on:  9/1/2018
  • A six-eyed sand spider is among 7,000 live creatures stolen from the Philadelphia Insectarium & Butterfly Pavilion. Surveillance video shows several suspects loading plastic containers into a car in broad daylight outside the insectarium before driving away, taking more than $40,000 worth of critters with them. Bizarrely, they left behind blue staff uniforms, which were impaled on a wall with steak knives. A Mexican fireleg tarantula was also stolen, but has since been recovered.

    AFTER SOME RESEARCH I FOUND THIS:Apparently it was two ex-workers. Whether they were ex-workers at the time or ex-workers now because of what happened, wasn't made clear... But this came from Newser:"Police have found the suspects, searched their homes, and returned a few creatures—including a colorful Mexican fireleg tarantula—but the highly venomous six-eyed sand spider is among many kidnapped critters still missing."Insurance does not cover this and they opened a gofundme page.HOWEVER...

    Well to be fair butterflies live very short life’s but yes I see what your trying to say that they shouldn’t let any children mess with the wildlife.

  • Maybe they took the insects to sell them.

    It was probably PETA members angry about the enslavement of insects 🙄 yet facilitating the euthanizing of 90% of the animals they claim to save. Remember when they got mad at Obama for killing a house fly
