    HAGATNA, Guam – Authorities in the U.S. territory of Guam have turned away a ship after thousands of spiders overflowed from its cargo.

    The Guam Department of Agriculture said hundreds of large spiders and thousands of smaller ones were seen when stevedores began offloading insulation and beams for housing units from the ship, the M.V. Altavia.

    The cargo was returned to the ship, and the Agriculture Department on Friday ordered that the ship not be allowed to dock. It was last ported in South Korea.

    He's probably still in Guam, waiting for his shipment of spiders.
