The world is a strange place as zombie preparation drills have now been carried out due to a recent wave of zombie-like attacks throughout the country.
Most recently of which was a man high on an unknown substance biting a human bicep in a “zombie-like” attack.
An ABC excerpt reads;
PALMETTO, Fla. – When Jeffrey Blake woke up in his Palmetto home Thursday morning, he had no idea the bizarre scuffle with his son-in-law the night before would thrust him into worldwide headlines about another “zombie” attack.
“It didn’t occur to me, to tell you the truth,” Blake said. The 48-year old was attacked and was bitten on the arm by the man who had stripped naked. When the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office described the bite as a “chunk of meat” out of Blake’s arm, the story quickly appeared throughout the internet.
In reality, Blake ended up with a bruised bicep with a minor puncture wound.
Still, the incident has similarities to the world-famous assault in Miami in which a man chewed off the face of a homeless man along a busy highway. Blake described 25-year old Charles Baker as “wild,” throwing furniture and tearing off his clothes.
“I don’t know what was in his body but whatever it was, it was mighty powerful,” Blake said.
And to top it all off, zombie disaster drills are now being practiced.
WLBZ2 did a piece on a Zombie Apocalypse Drill, it reads;
First responders and emergency agencies converged in Bangor to fend off the devastation of a zombie apocalypse.
While there wasn’t a real outbreak plaguing people, the gathering served as a training session on how to respond to an epidemic if one spread through Maine.
In the mock situation, disease, chaos and the walking dead took over. While the zombie apocalypse wasn’t real pandemics like the H1N1 virus in 2009 and the SARS outbreak in 2002 have proven to authorities they need to be prepared for anything.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has even previously written manuals on this matter assuming a future zombie attack would be in the works I guess, as reported by dev-test.intellihub.com in various articles.
