In Sydney, Australia, an apartment tenant phoned emergency services in 2015. They reported hearing furniture being thrown in a neighboring apartment along with a woman screaming and a man shouting “I’m going to kill you. You’re dead!”
When authorities arrived, they found a man alone in his apartment, squealing and chasing a large spider around his place with a can of bug spray.
A similar incident happened in 2019 in Perth, Australia. A pedestrian walking through the park overheard a toddler crying and a man yelling “Why don’t you die?” The pedestrian called authorities, which promptly arrived to find a terrified man yelling at a large spider. The police disposed of the spider.
