Montreal Airplane Passengers Were Screaming As Tarantulas Crawled On Them

I'm tired of these mother f*ckin' spiders on this mother f*ckin' plane.
Montreal Airplane Passengers Were Screaming As Tarantulas Crawled On Them

This is the kind of story that will make your skin crawl.

If you thought a snake was the worst thing you could find on a plane, think again.

It's spiders.

Big, hairy, motherf*ckin' spiders.

That's what happened to an Air Transat flight that landed in Trudeau Airport on Wednesday, April 18th.

The plane was coming in from Punta Cana and towards the end of the flight, some passengers said they spotted 2 massive tarantulas ranging from 10 to 20 centimeters in diameter crawling around in the cabin.

The passengers jumped up on their seats and flight attendants told people to cover their legs up.

That didn't seem to help much since one of the spiders actually crawled up a passenger's leg!

According to CBC that passenger required first aid, which is terrifying because this kind of tarantula is said to be very aggressive and venomous.

One of the passengers managed to catch the first spider, but the second one wasn't found until the plane landed.

Apparently the spider might have come from one of the carry-on bags.
