Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a showdown with a spider?

You have thrown a shoe at it, worked up the bravery to try and trap it, philosophised over whether it is ethical to kill it and nothing has worked?

And now you are standing paralysed with fear, staring at a spider in tension you know is going to end in some dramatic jumpscare.

That is exactly what happened to Hollie Hunter, 30, who screamed so loud when a spider ‘the size of her hand’ moved that her neighbours thought she was being attacked and called the police.

Although she was ‘mortified’, the embarrassing situation ended up working in her favour because the officers took the spider out for her – but not before having a good laugh.

Hollie said: ‘I’d just spent 40 minutes trying to get rid of a moth to then come back into my bedroom and find a massive spider at the bottom of my bed.

‘I’d honestly say it was the size of the palm of my hand. I was launching books at it, and when it ran towards me I screamed and started running to different rooms.

‘I think I was screaming and crying and making such a racket that my neighbour thought I was being attacked.’

Indeed, nearby locals in Livingston, West Lothian, Scotland, called police to the woman’s home just before 10.30pm on August 31.

A team of five officers showed up at Hollie’s door, ready to save her from whatever scream-inducing danger she was in.

She said: ‘I opened my door, and before they could say anything I just cried: “I’m so sorry there’s a spider under my bed and I’m petrified”.’

The cops asked if anyone else was in the flat and she answered ‘No, just me and the spider’.

The team decided to save her from the frightening, albeit not very dangerous, creature nonetheless and tooks the spider out for her.

Hollie continued: ‘While they still had my bed in the air, the spider strolled out into the hall.

‘One of the officers picked it up with his hand and took it outside with him – not without laughing at me. It was crawling about his arm as he was walking out the door.’
