Cannibal Type Rage Hits The Streets Of China, Real Life Zombies Or The Newest Pop Trend?

Is China Now Trying To Mimic The United States Real Life Horrors As Well?

It's a well known fact, anything trendy happening here in the U.S., will soon be copied by other countries. China is no exception to this rule, they're practically famous for doing cheap imitations and mass productions of the latest fads. Though I'm not so sure that's the case in this particular situation.

Following in the footsteps of Miami's so called "zombie attack", not to mention several other very similar cases throughout North America, China gets their very own crazed street cannibal. On May 26th, 2012 Rudy Eugene removed his clothes and attacked a Ronald Poppo on the busy streets of Miami.

After chewing off 75% of Poppo's face police arrived just in time to unload several rounds into Eugene, with at least one stray bullet hitting Poppo as well. According to the Miami Police, when first confronted, Eugene merely growled at the officers and continued his attack on Poppo.

No Delusional Or Hallucinogenic Narcotics Found In Eugene's Body

Miami Police immediately claimed Eugene was on a street drug referred to as bathsalts, but after an actual review of the autopsy, authorities found that no drugs were in his system, other than small traces of THC.

So if drugs weren't the cause of this zombie type behavior, then what was? Mental illness? Anger issues? Or maybe it was just a really bad case of the munchies? Whatever the cause, it hasn't been confined to this one incident or even to this country for that matter.

Aside from this particular case there have been many other cases of rage type cannibalism in recent months, both proceeding and following the Miami incident, though other than the flesh eating there has been very few similarities between the incidents. That is, until this most recent case of zombie rage in China.

Is this just a case of the Chinese trying to copy American trends or the beginning of a world wide cannibal plague?

China Decides To Get In On The Action With Their Own Street Cannibal

A few days ago, in the city of Wenzhou, in South-East China a woman was making her way through traffic when a man, who appeared to be intoxicated, stepped into traffic and blocked the woman's route. The man then proceeded to climb onto the car and beat on the hood in a fit of anger, while the terrified woman remained in the vehicle stunned and screaming.

After a few traumatic moments, the woman's natural instinct to flee took over and she jumped from her car in an attempt to escape her crazed attacker. It was at this point that the rage induced man tackled his victim to the ground and began chewing her face off, very much like the Miami attack back in May. The attacker continued to bite chunks of the woman's flesh for several minutes, as his shocked victim lay there frantically crying and calling for help.

Several people passing by took notice and attempted to subdue the attacker, but were unable to do much more than slow him down. Finally the police arrived on the scene and managed to restrain the attacker and take him into custody, after a vigorous fight.

Meanwhile the victimized woman was rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital for evaluation of her injuries. Witnesses who had attempted to help the woman claimed the crazed man's strength was phenomenal, and all of their efforts to try to subdue him were easily thwarted by the madman.

In the police reports, the attacker was stated as being a local Wenzhou bus driver, at this time his last name, Dong, is the only name authorities have released to the public. Wenzhou Police say, Dong was in fact quite inebriated upon capture, as he had spent his lunch hour having several drinks with friends, at a nearby drinking establishment.

There have been no reports as to whether any drugs were involved other than alcohol. The victim , last name Du,was rushed into emergency surgery to be treated for her injuries, to the extent of her lips and nose being completely reconstructed. She is expected to make a full physical recovery, though it's doubtful she will ever recover mentally from this truly horrifying event.

What is it that's suddenly causing seemingly normal human beings to start craving the flesh like rabid dogs? It's certainly not a "zombie outbreak" like you would see in a Romero movie, with the dead rising from the grave. Yet it's not the drug induced homicidal rage police originally claimed it to be either.

Could it be that certain individuals are now being infected with an advanced form of rabies or mad cow disease or is the entire world just going crazy together and taking on the exact same delusions of craving human flesh. I definitely don't have the answers, but I'm keeping my guns loaded and my doors locked from here on out. There's no way I'm going on the menu, of some flesh craving lunatics breakfast buffet, at least not without a fight.

      Any things a possibility and toxins are as likely a cause as any other. Thanks for reading and commenting mythbuster

      Interesting article, DS Duby. It's frightening that these attacks have happened and that nobody seems able to find a cause for such bizarre and violent behavior. Since no drugs have been named, do you think it's possible that environmental toxins are a cause?

      They are looking for the usual drugs that can be found in blood tissues samples. LSD can only be found with a spinal tap. Not saying it's LSD but perhaps a new drug that is being field tested. If 3 or more cities riot at the same time then US automatically goes under military rule for the nation.

      They tried to stir up panic & fear during the Rodney King riots but it only stayed in LA. If everybody went off their meds at the same time - it would be Columbine & Salem's Lot country-wide.

      Thank you BethPerry, people on a whole really are much meaner today than they once were. When I was a child I was taught to always say please, thank you, your welcome, to hold doors for strangers and ,well you know just be kind, and I still do it everyday. But the same courtesy is just rarely ever seen, no one seems to care about anyone else it really is a sad time in this worlds history. Thanks again for reading and commenting.

      DS Duby, a very interesting Hub and frankly, I've wondered about this myself a few times since the Fla. incident. I keep coming back to one thought: people are just so damned mean these days. I know, it sounds simplistic, but a nagging voice keeps telling me that society in general is steadily throwing away the last vestiges of civility and common decency.

      Great article, voting up.

      I try to make give anything. Lighter tone to ease tension but the cases do seem awful close to events in the bible. Unfortunately mankind is trying to dismiss religion to science which is probably the true cause of the worlds present turmoil. Thanks for reading and commenting Slcockerham

      Great article on this bizarre subject. I lean towards it being that demons are manifesting in these people. In 2 Timothy 3:1 it says that in the last days there will be perilous days. Another translation for perilous is "ragingly insane." Seems to hit the nail on the head! But the zombie twist is more comical, thanks again!

      LOL The China incident is still fairly new, and China is much better at keeping information to themselves, than Americans are. Eventually there will be more info released but who knows when that may happen. Thanks for reading and commenting iTommyGuns and Michelle Taylor.

      Canibalism itself has been around for a very long time. It is disturbing how people are becoming more and more mentally unbalanced to act out in such a manner. I guess we should all get ready for the end of the world as we know it since we seem to be heading fast forward in that direction.

      I agree, the first case I heard about in Miami I thought was tragic but probably just a drugged out guy or someone with a mental condition. But now it seems like there's always a new case in the news. Thanks for reading and commenting RunningDeer

      Zombies are always fun to read about in books and watch movies in theaters, but I seriously don't think I would make it in a true zombie apocalypse. I have zombie nightmares all the time. It's fun to talk about, but some of these cases are getting a little to real for me! Voted up and shared!

      Thanks Christy I do seem to have an unnatural fascination with zombies lol but I have my hopes that these are merely deranged individuals commuting these horrible acts and not a real plague. I'm soooo not prepared for a real epidemic lol

      Thanks for commenting Mecheshier, I wondered the same thing about toxins and food additives but I didn't even think about subliminal messaging, that's a really good point and certainly possible. It's definitely a strange world were living in. Thanks again for reading and commenting.

      Wow. Great article. Very well articulated. Hmmm, makes one wonder. Is it exposure to toxins, something in our food or gamer subliminal brainwashing? Times sure are scary.

      Thank you for sharing. Voted up for interesting.
