Alarmed neigh­bors in Perth, Aus­tralia, called po­lice after hear­ing a child scream­ing and a man re­peat­edly shout­ing, “Why don’t you die?!” on Jan. 1, ac­cord­ing to the Evening Stan­dard. Mul­ti­ple units of of­fi­cers ar­rived at the prop­erty, only to learn that the un­named man, an ex­treme arachno­phobe, had been try­ing to kill a spi­der. His wife con­firmed to po­lice that her child had been scream­ing, and her hus­band apol­o­gized to po­lice for the con­fu­sion. The spi­der didn’t sur­vive.
