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.

    “If it bites someone yes it can rot 25% of their body” he said this with such a carefree no big deal expression on his face😂😂

    Amazing how they have cameras outside, but not inside where they have the world's most venomous spider in an easily accessible tank.

    CHRISXTR3M3GAMING My guess is that who on earth would want to steal a population of potentially lethal insects in the first place 😨

    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...

    It does not matter, stealing is wrong. If they really cared about the animals they would of done in the right way, not stealing and destroy people's properties.
