Australian spider invasion
Thanks to Andy, at Towleroad, I now have another reason not to go to Queensland or their hospital...
SYDNEY (AFP) - An invasion of venomous spiders has forced an Australian hospital to evacuate patients and temporarily close its doors, reports said Wednesday.
Authorities decided the infestation of redback spiders at Baralaba Hospital in Queensland state's Banana Shire was too dangerous for patients, Australian Associated Press reported.
It said repeated attempts to oust the arachnids had failed, so patients and staff would be moved to another facility to allow a thorough fumigation of the 10-bed hospital.
You can see the rest of the story here, if you don't already have enough material for your nightmares.
Happy thoughts...happy thoughts....
