Venomous Scorpion Hitches Ride From Costa Rica To NJ
There aren't many creepy-crawlies that really bother me. I'm not a fan of spiders, but if I see one in my bedroom I don't freak out - it either gets squished or escorted outside, depending on how startled I am. Snakes are fine, lizards are fine, not much phases me.
However, if I opened my suitcase after a vacation and a freaking scorpion popped out, I might just burn the suitcase, all my clothes, and my house just for good measure.
A family from Vineland returned from a vacation in Costa Rica and discovered a stowaway - a venomous scorpion. The family quickly trapped it in a golf bag and called Vineland Animal Control. Members of the state Division of Fish & Wildlife took the animal and is working on finding a proper facility for it to stay in.
