As if cannibals and chupacabras weren't enough, two people died when swarms of venomous spiders invaded a town in India. This is the country that has recently been plagued by hoardes of mugging monkeys. The citizens of Sadiya were celebrating a Hindu festival when swarms of highly aggressive spiders suddenly appeared. Local resident Jintu Gogoi spent a day in the hospital with pain and nausea after being bitten, and says that, weeks later, his finger is still black and swollen.

Or perhaps it's a new, hybridized species, along the lines of "Africanized" bees and altered ants.
