Nightmare cruise

Thousands of spiders found on ship from South Korea. It was a cargo ship, rather than a cruise ship, but still. Gah!
The Guam Department of Agriculture says hundreds of large spiders and thousands of smaller ones were seen when stevedores began offloading insulation and beams for housing units from the ship, the M.V. Altavia.
They blocked the offloading of materials for fear that the influx of spiders would damage the local ecosystem. I don't blame them.
