Sure, Blame the Spider!

Oh, what a web we weave when the final intent is to deceive!  Indeed, it seems that several investigators are reaching the conclusion that this recent story about a creature attack is falsified.  The stories were told, then people reviewed the details to get a gist on what happened.  Yet, when assessments were matched with alleged accounts, the numbers did not crunch!

Going over to India, residents of a town called Sadiya claimed to have suffered through swarm of storming spiders.  Their local festival reached it’s terminus on May 8, when the concluding celebration was held.  Yet, it was reported that spiders seem to spring out of nowhere, attacking the party-goers!  Several people were injured and hospitalized.  One man gave reports of suffering through excruciating pain after having been bitten.  Additionally, two people, a man and a teenaged boy, were killed from the seeming spider bites!

A reporter named LR Saikia from Dibrugarh University gave accounts of the so-called spider swarm.  Saikia and other investigators visited Sadiya to get details about the alleged arachnid advances, and how it all went down.  Yet, when they collected all of the alleged evidence, Saikia reported that the victims could not have died from spider bites!  Twelve people had been admitted to area hospitals, yet merely two of these people were verified to be suffering from the effects of encounters with eight-legged invaders.

Reporters visited with relatives of the individuals whom allegedly perished from arachnid poisonings.  Also, Indian officials of arachnid activities, including investigative researchers from Dibrugarh University and Gauhati University, tried to gain information about recent spider raids on the town of Sadiya.  Yet, no solid facts could be revealed, as no conceivably culpable arachnids could be located.  Suggestive fingers pointed toward possibly culpable candidates such as black wishbones, funnel-web spiders, or even tarantulas.  However, none of these was located nearby, and any possible eight-legged assassins have yet to be found!

The researchers agree that the killing spiders are not indigenous to the region where they inflicted the deadly assaults.  The Assam state of India does not host venomous spiders.  Investigators have been studying nearly twenty tarantula-like spiders that were found within that area.  These spiders are being tested for the possibly lethal capacity of their venom, though reports say that spiders from Assam normally are not lethal.

Investigators are coming to the conclusion that a sudden invasion of spiders during the town’s festival is merely conjecture.  The medical experts at the local hospital to where the victims were taken currently can not state with legitimacy about the spider that made the bites actually has deadly venom.  Furthermore, those whom allegedly were bitten by spiders went to seek treatment from witch doctors first, before going to legitimate medical officials for actual treatments to the so-called bites!
