Killer spiders invade India, leave two dead after festival sneak attack

That's what I love about going to the local festival: Hot dogs, kiddie rides, cotton candy and fatal spider bites.

From Time Magazine:

Swarms of never-before-seen spiders descended upon a cultural festival in the northeastern Indian town of Sadiya last month, biting several people and leaving two dead. The arachnid "invasion," as the Times of India called it, caused a panic among festival-goers who reportedly jostled one another and tripped over benches in an effort to escape the venomous spiders.

Scientists from Dibrugarh University and Gauhati University have not been able to identify the spiders, which resemble tarantulas but may be a new species altogether.

Eight-legged freaks FTW.
