Dash cam makes spider look like a giant

Friday, October 19, 2018, 3:06 PM - Just in time for the spooky season: Here's dashcam footage of the Fulshear Police Department in Texas, which captured a “giant” spider on the windshield.

It gives the appearance the massive bug is about to sneak up on a police officer who was performing a routine traffic earlier this month.

“This little guy was positioned perfectly on the windshield of the patrol car and gave our clerk, who was reviewing the video, quite the ‘Halloween scare,’” Fulshear Police wrote on a Facebook post on October 16.

“Although it looks like a BAD 1950’s special effects movie, we assure you it was real,” the City of Fulshear said, adding that “the angle in which the dash cam captures the spider, makes it appear as though a giant spider is about to eat Officer Braly.”

In reality, the spider was regular-sized. We can thank a camera glitch for this interesting effect.
