Pet spider kills its owner

Pet spider kills its owner



Killer ... a poisonous Black Widow spider




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.

Neighbours alerted police after becoming alarmed by the stink.

And horrified officers were met by a nightmare scene.



Spider's victim ... the body of tragic Voegel is taken away


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.?



Hungry ... termites ate body


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.



Lair ... a cage is taken away

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.



Danger ... he kept snakes


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.

this story is full of exaggeration, you all know that right?
cops saw spiders and their immaginations ran wild, nothing ate the body, it was probably just decomposed. the only thing that would eat the body (if he indeed owened them) would be perhaps monitor lizards

i'd edit your post to read:

I don't classify a spider as a fucking pet. In a spider's world every other living creature is either predator or prey. <----- period. That spider will never ever see you as anything but predator.

Also, I seriously doubt the large majority of the graphic details offered. Especially the bit about spiders crawling in and out of the body. :rolleyes:

if a rock can be called a pet, so can a spider. But I see your point.

Imagine if the black widow bite only paralyzed him, and he was awake while the insects ate him.

It's not like a black widow bite will kill someone in seconds or minutes. He had ample time to call an ambulance and for some reson decided not to.

blackwidow spider bites aren't really deadly to healthy adult humans. Children and the elderly may have some severe possibly life threatening problems. But one bite to a normal human adult will only make you feel sick.

He must have suffered many many bites, or just died naturally and then was eaten by his pets.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I work in a grocery store and twice in the last year the produce guys found black widows in the grapes from Italy. My Jamaican frien took one home, put in a jar with twigs, and feeds it crickets and whatever bugs he finds. The widow will strike it's prey, then chill for a bit while the poison takes hold. Then it wraps in a web. Then sucks it dry.... This fucker grew 3X it's size and is still alive close to a year later. Last week we found a huge wolf spider in the delli refrigerator. He put it in the jar with the widow but neither of them are making a move on the other. Sorry about giving you the willies but it's kinda cool...

Tarantulas only eat live moving prey. That part is bullshit at least.

Spiders make wicked pets. They love to kill and I love to watch. :grin:
