    Default Darwinism in action - Pet spider kills its owner

    Pet spider kills its owner

    from ALLAN HALL
    in Berlin

    A MAN who lived in his own “zoo” of lizards and insects was fatally bitten by a pet black widow spider — then eaten by the other creepy-crawlies.
    Police broke in to Mark Voegel’s apartment to find spider Bettina along with 200 others, several snakes, a gecko lizard called Helmut and several thousand termites had gorged on his body.
    Neighbors alerted police after becoming alarmed by the stink.
    A police spokesman said: “It was like a horror movie. His corpse was over the sofa.
    “Giant webs draped him, spiders were all over him. They were coming out of his nose and his mouth.
    “There was everything there one could imagine in the world of reptiles.
    “Larger pieces of flesh torn off by the lizards were scooped up and taken back to the webs of tarantulas and other bird-eating spiders.”
    Loner Voegel, 30, never invited people back to his “jungle” home, a small apartment in the German city of Dortmund.
    Police described it as a cross between a botanical garden and the butterfly breeding ground in the serial killer movie The Silence Of The Lambs.
    One tarantula had built a nest the size of a swallow’s in a corner of the ceiling.
    Voegel also had a boa constrictor and several poisonous frogs from South America.
    Spider expert and animal cruelty officer Gabi Bayer said he kept creatures “that should never be allowed in a private home”.
    She said: “He had spiders so aggressive they are the equivalent of a pit-bull in the animal world.”
    The reptiles were allowed to roam free in the flat.
    The heating elements on two tanks containing spiders and their termite snacks had exploded and dislodged the metal tops allowing them to escape.
    Voegel is thought to have been dead for between seven and 14 days.
    A post-mortem will be carried out in the next few days. But authorities believe Bettina alone was responsible for Voegel’s death.
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.

    It does seem a little a bit like keeping a pet grenade.

    He let these things roam around his flat? This dude must have been suicidal. Altho the black widow bite can go unnoticed I just did a quick look round the net and the first 8 hours after the bite are meant to be agony. He will have known what was going on why didnt he seek treatment? Crazy

    I'm glad little fuckers didn't get anyone else - cops/neighbours etc. Gotta love the description of the scene though. "Larger pieces of flesh torn off by the lizards",

    I've been bitten twice by Black Widows.

    It sucks.

    Picture the worst case of the Flu that you've ever had and then having Warren Sapp jump up and down on you wearing his cleats for 12 hours in a room that's 150 degrees with 1000% humidity.

    Sorta like having sex with Rosie O'Donnel.


    You'd think I would have learned my lesson but a few years back, when I worked at the toy store, I captured a Black Widow and kept it in a "Bug Jar" (a special plastic jar with a clear plastic lense that's also a magnifier).

    I kept her for about six weeks, it was cool because I'd catch flies in the windows and put them in the jar and watch her work them over. I even put a Bumble Bee in the jar and this thing was three times her size and she was a stone-cold killer. She just fired her web at the Bumble Bee until it was incapacitated and then she started to wrap it up, pausing every five minutes to inject poison into the bee. It took 20 minutes until the bee stopped moving.

    As cool as it was, I had to gas her with bug-spray because I hate spiders.

    How'd everybody know the names of these creatures? And if they knew the names, they knew they existed, right? So why didn't anyone complain sooner. I'm not sure I would feel comfortable living next to this menagerie.

    The Rosie thing is funny.

    My mother got bit back in may from Brown Recluse. Funny thing is, I live out in the sticks and kill those things all the time. Mom's house, well it's not a place where one would have to worry about getting bit by anything. Just goes to show you that those fuckers are everywhere.

    Dude, I've heard about the Black Widow bites. Never seen a bite or even known of anyone having been bit by one. But a good buddy of mine is a doctor and he pretty much said it was just exactly like you stated. He said have fun with the rattlesnakes dude, but don't get a black widow bite. Anyway. Out.

    I killed three or four Black Widows in my bathroom last year. They were coming out from under the washing machine. I'd walk in and one would just be sitting there, in the middle of the bathroom floor, like "Hi, I'm a damn Black Widow." And I was like, "Hey there, here's my damn foot." I haven't seen one this year, which is nice.

    I didn't realize Black Widows were so cordial.
