Lost in New York: Pregnant Tarantula

You've undoubtedly seen missing pet posters taped light poles near your home, but have you seen this distressing (in more ways than one) "lost" poster about Penelope, the Mexican Red Rump Tarantula?

Bonus: She's pregnat with hundreds of babies.

The sign, posted a neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, in tsaid that the tarantula looks menacing, but she's mostly harmless:

I know she looks crazy scary, but she's mostly harmless. She's pregnant, so I'm hoping to find her before she has her babies. She's mostly active at night and likes to hide in dark corners. She shouldn't bite, but sometimes jumps when frightened. If you find her, please try to catch her and put her in a tupperware bowl with a few holes in the top for air.

So, Brooklynites you've got two choices: catch the tarantula or move out!
