  • Pregnant tarantula loose in Brooklyn was a hoax

    Pregnant tarantula loose in Brooklyn was a hoax

    A story that went viral on Friday showed that someone posted fliers announcing their pregnant "Mexican red rump-tarantula named Penelope escaped in South Slope, Brooklyn. We drove all around that neighborhood and found that poster nowhere. Those to whom we spoke all knew of the missing arachnid but only saw the flier online. The creepy news, if this isn't a hoax? Penelope might stand a decent chance of surviving in the wild.  Fortunately for residents of Brooklyn, it was all a hoax.
