Dog Scared of Massive Spider
Occurred on August 19, 2017 / England, UK
Info from Licensor: "This horrifying video shows the stand-off between a massive spider and a landlady's terrified dog. Sam Watt caught the huge creature as it clambered up her bedroom wall after her dog Tilli, a black cocker-spaniel, started barking and squealing at it. Sam said: 'It was huge and horrible. I don't normally mind spiders but this one gave me palpitations. I saw it crawling across the ceiling above my bed, and there was absolutely no chance that I was going to be able to sleep with that in the room.' Sam bravely climbed onto her bed to catch the creature but due to the height of her ceiling, she said it was a daring attempt to trap it. She added: 'Because it was so high I had to slide it all the way down the wall and onto my dressing table. I gave it a good talking to and told it not to return again. The dog wasn't impressed.' The video shows the stand-off between the spider and Tilli, with the spider clambering to get out of the glass towards the dog and Tilli motionless. Sam said that she has had a lot of reaction from friends who have seen the video and hopes that she never sees another spider that large again. She said: 'I have had a lot of reaction on social media since I uploaded the video. People have told me I should have ran away but there was no chance I could sleep with that in my room. I had to catch it.'
