The BBC reports that northern England is currently under attack by exploding zombie caterpillars.
From the report:
Caterpillars are being killed by a bug which turns them into "exploding zombies", a wildlife expert has said. Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside Wildlife Trust said the skins of insects have been found on Winmarleigh Moss, near Garstang.
The caterpillars usually eat heather and bilberry but are being infected by a baculovirus which causes them to seek light so they climb up trees where they explode and the baculovirus is released to seek new hosts.
Fortunately higher animals such as humans are immune from such things ... or not!
Brexit should make it possible to confine the zombie outbreak to just this one isolated island, of little import. If confined to England, no major population centers should be affected.
The north will be protected by Hadrian's Wall. If that fails, Antonine Wall may be the last resort before all of Brexit falls.
God save the caterpillars.
On the other hand, it's too late for the crazy cat ladies.
