    Oh look a dumb woman with zero respect for animals...
    Look at those comments, spiders just can't catch a break.

    I'm sorry, but I really don't care about the majority of the world having a bad opinion on spiders. Using a live animal in a prank is wrong no matter what kind of animal it is.

    Well, no need for me to go to the gym today since my target heart rate is up. This is the kind of female that sets all females back 10 steps on multiple levels. She is also the kind of female that creates the saying, “you can be pretty or smart, but not both.” (No, I don’t agree with that saying but it exist because of idiots like her).

    Yep, enraged just a bit. Extra rage because females like that are against everything I believe in.

    I don't know this lady. And I agree she could be a very nice person for all I know. But what she did there is just a dumb thing to do, even if she isn't. I'm very happy she returned it to the pet store. Better than most people in this thread

    I am happy that it was returned to the pet store and hope someone who cares for the animal buys it instead. However, I do have a problem with pet stores selling animals to just anyone who walks in with cash. I get calls from our local pet stores all the time for bad “merchandise” needing a home. Missing a leg, tail gone, sick and needs care and those animals are written off. All animals are just things to be sold and not a living creature for most pet stores.

    There is one in my area that I have seen turn away customers. They inquire about why someone wants an animal, can they meet the basic needs, things like that and if the person isn’t ready yet or should absolutely not have that animal they refuse the sale. The animals care and safety comes first. Chain stores only care about profit.

    That girl should never have been sold that animal. They make really good fake spiders that would have served her prank just fine.

    It was a similar "purchase for a prank" incident that actually got me into the hobby. I wasnt a fan of spiders and didnt get why one would own one...but as an animal lover, i understood the dangers and unadultetated stupidity involved in such a careless act.

    A neighbor bought a rose hair and was showing it off to my brother when i walked in. As i asked why he bought a spider, he responded by telling me he got it to prank his roomate (college kids:confused:). He intended to throw it onto him.:banghead:

    I informed him that his prank would likely kill the animal, which could potentially live for several more decades. When he responded that he didnt care because it would be soooo funny, I informed him he wasnt getting the t back....i commandeered the animal and still have that t to this day....that was 20 yrs ago and that t not only eliminated my phobias, but re kindled a childhood interest that led to my current room dedicated to them. And best of all, no animals were killed by a prank that night.

    I found it disgusting and completely irresponsible that the life of an animal was held with so little regard, and no respect....i found the above prank video to be just as ill concieved and wrong.

    Im amazed at how little some people value the lives of animals....but i guess i shouldnt be..just look at how many dogs are treated....and theyre intelligent and actually love people back.:sorry:

    While I do appreciate those who try and overcome their arachnophobia this just kind of ruins the whole moment. You don’t magically stop being afraid of spiders if you have one crawl on you; it takes time and doesn’t always come right away.

    Exactly. It might take a little bit of bravery to allow one to crawl on you, but all people will do is spend the whole time worrying they might be bitten.

    Bringing up Latrodectus death statistics? Good! Claiming that Theraphosa Sps. "Spin webs strong enough to catch birds"? Not so good.

    How are people so irrational? The guy holding the dog was in more danger than this hysterical girl and her friend ever were.
