Before i start i would like to say this is old news and i had totally forgot about it until now. So here it is.
I came across this and wanted too bring it to the attention of ATS members because i believe that theres more than meets the eye here.
A ship from south korea just so happened to nearly drop off thousands of spiders of unknown species in Guam? Now dont get me wrong here but yes id
expect a hundred or so in total but literally thousands!.....somethings got my spidey senses going here.
Is it at all possible that the South Koreans knew exactly what they were doing here and tried an attack of sorts by other means?
My Questions to you
1 Does anyone know what species they were?
2 How did they reach such high numbers, unless it was on purpose?
3 Where did the ship go when refused dock?
Customs officials discovered the infestation in the MV Altavia’s cargo after the South Korean ship docked in Guam, one of the Mariana Islands in the
western Pacific Ocean.
Thousands of spiders, some with bodies as big as 10 pence pieces, started pouring out of the ship’s crates as Guam's Port Authority workers began
moving the containers off the boat onto the dock, last Wednesday.
One crate made it onto the dock before the problem was realised.
The shipment had been destined for a US military base construction site on the island for 8,000 US Marines.
The ship was told to leave the port and moor off shore while officials investigated if the species was venomous or posed any danger, Guam's
agriculture officials said.
The creepy crawlies were seen when dockers began offloading insulation and beams for housing units from the vessel which had travelled from South
Agriculture officials said they did not know what species of spider was on the ship.
But they said it was a type that was not normally found on Guam and there was concern that it could damage the island's environment.
‘It's not on Guam,’ Mr Torres added. ‘We don't want it here.’
The ship was carrying housing units and accessories which were to be used at a village expected to house up to 18,000 temporary workers.
Before the ship initially docked, officers with the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency boarded the ship and gave clearance for cargo to be unlocked
for offloading, said Bernadette Meno, an administrator for the Port Authority of Guam.
But when port workers saw the spiders, the containers were ordered back on the ship and it was anchored in the harbour.
The decision was later made not to let the ship return.
So what do you think?
