The woman says that the spider was so big, it needs a "leash." HELL. NO.

A mother in Shelby Township found this giant spider in her son's bedroom in their apartment. Jillian Duke was in her toddler's bedroom yesterday when she saw, what she thought, was a ball of string. And then she realized it had eyes.

She panicked and called her parents and husband. They killed it with some books, and took it to a business in Utica that specializes in spiders. They identified it as an Australian Huntsman spider. They're harmless, but they're HUGE. These things eat birds, okay? And they're not even native to this continent.

They believe that it probably slipped into the country on a tropical plant.

That's all great, but has anybody else seen Arachnophobia? Yeah. I rest my case.
