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.
