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...

    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.

    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

    Arachnids at an insectarium? And no security or locked cages with venomous creatures?

  • Da Hai Zhu Ikr. Arachnids shouldn’t be at an insectarium. They should be at an Arachnidtarium.
