That is... That is horrendous! It's friggin' HUGE!! >.<
I would have flushed it V.V
Up here in Washington we have wolf spiders that are about twice the size of that one. They hardly ever get in the house. But what's worse is we have fiddle backs (yay when they bite you your flesh rots off! :O) and we have Hobo spiders... OMFG they will actually charge you to attack. They are evil. And they get massive as well.
The other day I took the broom out of the closet to sweep my porch off... And as I swung it a giant spider of doom flung out as well. At least it was outside. >.> The cat attacked it and smushed it.
Animal cruelty? Naw.... It had to go, man. Had to go!!
