Curiouser and curiouser. Just weeks after the US Center for Disease Control publicly denied the existence of zombies, they have been holding large-scale training exercises in preparation for a zombie apocalypse in the state of Maine.
Representatives from several hospitals, public safety and emergency management agencies, the National Guard and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention gathered to practice how they would respond to an outbreak of a zombie attack.
The premise was a virus that turning the infected citizens of Maine into zombies. Once infected, the virus quickly spread to the brain, and turned the host into a full-fledged zombie looking for brain to eat.
The officials were armed with two vaccines, one which prevented the bitten victim turning into a zombie and another to bring the zombies back to life.
'We have identified in several states, particularly Texas, New York, Illinois outbreaks of these civil disturbances and biting' an official said.
Rumors of a 'zombie apocalypse' have been on the rise after a series of disturbing incidents including true stories of people waking after being certified dead, a husband who ate his wife's arm and a man pulled out and threw his own intestines at police.
Be prepared people, watch Dawn of the Dead, 28 days later and even Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead if you have to because there is a chill in the air, something is coming and it's not going to be pretty.
