View Full Version : ENTIRE collection disposed of !!!



Miss Bianca
08-14-2009, 01:33 PM
So I moved from my grandmother's about 2 weeks ago,
and was settling into my new place,
this morning I go to pick up the last of my things,
which included my ENTIRE collection of tarantulas and other pets,
plus a TV and a box of shoes,
not too little but enough to bring back in only one trip w/ the car,

well when I got there this morning, all that was there in my room was the TV
and on top of it my box of shoes and my mail.
I asked where she put all the cages and containers,
she said "I threw all the critters out, I'm sure they were of no importance".

After the initial shock and some choice words for her,
I proceeded to leave the building, and cry my eyeballs out for over an hour downstairs.

I am just venting here since this is an 'announcements' section... and still choking back tears...
I feel betrayed and have thought of everything from sueing to arson to homicide...

I am upset beyond what words can express ...
I had most of these minus maybe 5, since they were tiny..

I can't believe I'm down to quantity one, my MM rosea who was out on loan and just made
it back from Texas is with me at the new place...
My list was as follows... I still can't believe I am speaking of my babies in the past tense ..
:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

RIP all my beloveds... I will miss you so so much... :(

I can't believe that!

Your entire collection was thrown out!!!!!!!??????

I would be soooo pissed if that ever happened.


I have about 5 different breeding projects going on, I'll make sure to save 2 slings from each sac for you, free of charge.


God, I can't believe that.

Wow, what would posses someone to think that was okay to do? Did she let them go or did she murder them? I am completely floored just reading it! I can't begin to imagine what you are going through right now. I get a pain in my stomach just thinking about someone doing anything remotely the same to my collection. Ontop of that you had some very nice tarantulas. I am sure "sorry to hear" doesn't help. Much less the unknowing of where and what ultimately happened to them. I can only wish there is any kind of positive outcome to this disastrous situation. Ben

That's very nice of you to say Warren thank you...
I am just really heart-broken.. I can't believe this...
it's hard to accept..

OMG...OMG....I am SO sorry to hear of this. My heart is absolutely breaking for you....so, so sorry. ♥ :(
As Anastasia said; there are simply no words for this. :(

Anastasia
08-14-2009, 02:13 PM
My mind is raising...., did you asked her where did she toss them??
did you try to look if you can find any to rescue??!!
OMG ! Am so sorry

08-14-2009, 02:19 PM
OMG, I am so so sorry. I am speechless. What a horrible thing to have to endure! I wish there was more that I could do, but all I can say is I am sorry and I hope that she realizes just what a terrible thing she has done.

I too am curious as to where she put them, whether she destroyed them or just dumped them outside somewhere. Any chance she acted semi-humanely and dropped them off at a shelter or something somewhere? I have seen T listings at my local shelter every once and a while.

Miss Bianca
08-14-2009, 02:21 PM
Everything is gone, my heart is broken... :( :( :(

She said she got 'rid of everything' on Tuesday because the garbage truck comes by Wednesdays... so... :( I was literally 24-48 hrs too late...
she could've called me or anything I would've gone in a heart-beat.. she's only about 10 mins away...
I know now that they are what I should've taken FIRST, and not last..
oh my
god what am I going to do... I am just... I mean nothing can fix this... I am torn.. I am destroyed.. thanks for the kind words.. I am really fighting back
tears.. like I don't even know what to do or say..

OMG!!! My heart is racing right now. That would piss me off soooo bad. Dont worry Bianca I'll take care of you. When I send your new babies there will be a few suprises in there for you. Everything works out for good people, believe it. It will get better I promise.

tjmi2000
08-14-2009, 02:22 PM
I realize this person is your grandmother and while the animals had no importance to her, didn't she realize their importance to you? Or what about the fact that they were living organisms and not garbage to be tossed out. It is unimaginable to me that people can be this cruel! I am just flabbergasted by this situation. I might be in jail right now for elder abuse if I were you!

Warren Bautista
08-14-2009, 02:31 PM
Don't worry, next year I willll send you a few B. smithi, P. regalis, A. geniculata, and Aphonopelma sp. "Carlsbad green" slings once I breed them, as well as a pair of Centruroides vittatus.


I know this will not make up for your lost collection, but this should make you feel a little better. :)

I have seen people on here with "pest" species roaches. Maybe you could help Grandma see the light with a nice colony of her own... freerange. :evil:

As for you, if a few hissers would make your new place more homey, PM me an address ;)

08-14-2009, 03:17 PM
Im so sad Bianca, why would your granny do this to you? she should had at least called and say "get your crap out or ill get rid of it" it was a mean and cruel thing to do. i know she is your granny but did you consider pressing charges or bringing it to small claims court?

BlackCat
08-14-2009, 03:19 PM
That is unbelievable! Really sorry for your loss. You could try and call the company that picks the trash up to see where they take it and they would probably let you go through to see if you can find their enclosures if they were still in them and not broken.

xhexdx
08-14-2009, 03:20 PM
My jaw dropped from the time I read that she said 'I'm sure they were of no importance.' and is still dropped...

I'm so sorry! How can someone believe they were of no importance but you were keeping them!? That makes no logical sense!

PM is on the way.

WOW. im mad just reading this. i dont understand how someone can do that. i kno how u feel because there is nothing u can do. i dont kno wut id do if i where you all i kno is that id b in jail. really sry to hear about wut hapened.

I cant believe that happened..im very sorry that happened to you..i would prolly be throwing some fists if i was you..but this fall ill be doing quite a bit of breeding and will try to contact you and hook you up with some

I would have gone in her house and thrown out a collection of her belongings. Out of the window of the top floor of the house.

I am rage'ing for you right now. Were they in glass enclosures? You may be able to go to the dump and salvage. Hell I would.

Ts are #1
08-14-2009, 04:57 PM
Holy shnit im so sorry!!! it makes me mad when people dont understand how much you love something but they dont understand that. And maybe you can ask her to buy you all the tarantulas you lost back, and again im so sorry

sean-820
08-14-2009, 05:17 PM
Did she just let the t's go outside, then throw the tanks out, or just throw the tanks out with the t's in them? Either way, that sucks and you have every right to be totally pissed as i would think any "critter" that you kept has some impotance to you, especially if you lived with her she should of realized and at least called you or left them alone. Did she think she was doing you a favour or something by getting rid of them?

08-14-2009, 05:51 PM
Aww man, Bianca, I'm sorry about this. Its almost incomprehensible, that someone would be so inconsiderate. Even if they weren't pets or even living creatures, just your property, it would be so disrespectful. But that they were animals in your care and just disposed of like garbage, I just can't put to words what that is :mad: :mad: :mad:

Again, you have my condolences :(

Phone the Humane society on her. She might be charged with mistreatment of animals.

Add up the price of replacement costs and present her with a bill.

Edit; Didn't see she was your grandma:( Guess I wouldn't be this harsh. Sorry for your loss.

I don't think inverts are really covered by the ASPCA, but you may have a chance with the crestie.

Rochelle
08-14-2009, 06:17 PM
I certainly don't condone violence or retaliation against Granny ~ after all ~ she's from a completely different generation who probably sees T's as merely "yucky spiders".
This in no way lessens the impact of losing your entire collection of PETS, however.
I'm pretty sure that there's plenty of us around to help you get back what you had - even though it doesn't diminish the loss of the individuals.

I am so darned sorry, I just don't know what to say. :(

I'm so sorry! I do have a question about your grandma...is she stable mentally? If not, that could explain what happened. This is not a joke! When people begin to get dementia or alzheimers they tend to do some pretty crazy things. It's like something upstairs isn't connected anymore. Just curious.

Good observation. Very astute. Granny may not have meant direct harm. She may have believed she was in some way actually helping you out by "disposing of" your pets?

Doesn't make it any easier to swallow, I know...but to understand all ~ is to forgive all. ♥

The real question is whether you want to create a rift between yourself and your grandma. The benefit is you might be able to get her to pay for your collection. Of course, you need to consider whether she's capable of doing that. If she's got a nice amount of money that's one thing, if she's living off social security that's another. If she can't pay, then there's nothing to be done. No sense creating family tension for no benefit, just don't give her the opportunity to do anything like that again.

If she can pay, you still have to consider whether it's worth the cost. The cost being family tension. If you're estranged you might as well consider small claims court, since the relationship is meaningless.

As far as the loss, it's sad. I would rant too regardless of whether or not I had any recourse.

They're right, as bad as you feel and wish ill will (not truly), she really may not realize what she's done. Or it may be that because she doesn't see the worth in tarantulas (as is often the case with older generations), she may not understand how she made you feel. Doesn't make it right and doesn't help your feelings but well, at least it wasn't out of spite to you and your Ts. I dunno, I just hope she was in control of her faculties and it was just a misunderstanding and she has been supremely apologetic. Dementia/alzheimers is horrible and honestly worse than your lost Ts (please don't take me harsh for that :( )

very good post, my grandma has the beginning stages of dementia and my grandpa had alzheimers,and ive seen the effects
so it wont surprise me that IF this is the case, then her actions went really her fault
but if this isnt the case, then man.....thats just wrong
RIP little critters :(

Wow. Sorry for the loss though I don't think my condolences are going to help much. Provided your grandma's mental health is in order, I'd ask for her to at least cover the costs of the collection. Though replacing the spiders won't make you feel better, it will at least be a step in the right direction. Though you have stated you were upset, even once the initial shock has worn off, I find it hard to believe that your relationship will be untainted after this.

MrRogers
08-14-2009, 08:48 PM
So sorry to hear about your situation.... I remember how tough it was to get ridd of my little Rosie willingly. I wish you the best rebuilding your collection as hard as it will be.

On a side note I'm very moved by members (Warren et al) who wish to send you some slings to help build your collection again. Hopefully it's going to help!

HOLY <edit>! I got so mad from reading this. I just... don't understand. I don't even like to think what those T went threw it makes me sick. I feel for you because my mom dose the same <edit> sometimes. Luckily it hasn't been anything alive yet but stuff that is very important to me she has thrown away with out thought. This scars me because if my mom found out about how many T's I had she might do the same thing.

Oh, god! That would be like coming home to find that my horses (my broodmare and my absolutely beloved 2 year old) were sold or put on a slaughter truck bound for the border. I cannot imagine the feelings of betrayal, despair, and utter sadness you must be feeling.

*hugs* love. I... I have no words worthy of your grief. Mourn your dearies well.

Well,I'm a Noob here and my experience so far buying stuff for my T's has been an adventure with People's attitude's....when I say this is for a Tarantula most of them..... well,they get creeped out. What was done to you well,words fail me! I'm so sorry for your loss BUT I think its worth the time spent to go and look for them if, you know where she tossed them..... they may still be in their containers.

Mr. Gone
08-15-2009, 08:00 AM
This is insane. I'm assuming she had no problems with your T's when you lived there or you wouldn't have left them there.

I would definitely try to look for them at the dump-site. You may have to call a few numbers, starting with the trash people; find out what truck was at that house on that day, and where it unloaded. I wouldn't expect to find much, but I would have to try. Now that it's 2 days later, I don't know if there would be much hope. If you explain to the right people what happened, and that we're talking about "venomous Tarantulas", maybe they will be more helpful, as the idea of tarantulas running amok is frightening to many people.

In any event, I would hit granny up with a bill. The enclosures themselves would add up, plus supplies; but the creatures inside are priceless. Providing mental health isn't the issue, she sounds like she's just being spiteful about something. She apparently doesn't respect your emotional attachment to your PETS, so you need to make her understand in numbers and dollars how much you had invested (tanks, dirt, decor, critters, heat mats, lights, gauges, anything and everything) and that she destroyed your investment of X dollars.

I'm also curious what your choice words for her were. If it was anything like: "What were you thinking, these are my babies that I've raised since they were tiny for x years", then I would like to know her response to that. I mean, how could she?

Roski
08-15-2009, 11:13 AM
I felt tears while reading your post :( I know that only time can dull the shock now. Having your own babies destroyed by someone else is one thing... but coming from a family member adds a whole new axis of conflict. I'm speechless. All my thoughts are of you and your babies.

Take care,
Rosie

I'm very sorry to hear about this. I can't imagine what that must feel like. Now while a mental issue could be the case this seems like it was done with an intent, I would take the whole 'of no importance' thing as a way of saying if they were important you should have gotten them sooner.

If you feel this was the case then by all means give her a bill, she may not pay for it, but she will probaly never understand the emotional connection you had for the spiders. Putting a finicial value of them in front of her would give them some value in her eyes and possibly help her understand how wrong what she did was.

Okay... first of all thank you so much for the outpoor of kind words, and for any future posts,
for the condolences and for the comments and the phone calls (you know who you are ;) )...

I am seeing I have a few PMs there and will get to those shortly...

In response to a few of the posts on here, I would like to say,

Yes she did it out of some form of spite, and 'on purpose', if you will...
she didn't throw out anything else of mine, this time or since I moved,
(I've gone back 2-3 times and nothing's ever gone.) She even made like 'icky'
motions like she was disgusted when she told me they were gone.

This was done on purpose and not out of real ignorance. Her ignorance is more like
'oh those hairy bugs'..

She didn't throw away or get rid of my TV. My box of shoes...
she specifically got rid of the tarantulas, and even waited for the specific
day BEFORE the garbage truck comes by.

As for this seeking to rescue idea, these trucks, I mean I am in NY,
they crush once they've done a few city blocks and are full. (Cannot even IMAGINE! ugh)

Also , again mentioning that I'm in NY, not sure how that'd play out with any
kind of pressing charges or calling animal police or sueing or anything of that nature.
They're not exactly sold or commonly kept here..
what else, what else..

Yes I have thought of acting on this, one way or another, but haven't yet,
and no me and my grandmother did not have a good relationship, nor was it bad.
She was simply like, "the old lady I lived with', or 'payed once a month' type of thing...
we didn't really have a relationship like friends or even family, we didn't eat together or anything...
I was out by 8am most days, and got back around 7-8pm,
an hour or so AFTER she's already in bed, or at least retreated into her bedroom...
so we never really saw each other much.

She knew of my tarantulas, about my fascination with them. It's known in my whole family.
I did find out she's upset with my dad because I called him about it, and he was outraged also,
mind you he hates 'pets' of any kind, and he still couldn't believe her course of action.
He said he's not sure if their 'beef' had anything to do with this.

As for her mental state, she's fine.
She is an evil old woman, that's all this is.

My dad told me to go there and get the rest of my belongings and that he would understand
if I never spoke to her ever again. That he is almost at that point himself.
This is crazy... I am outraged...

Thank you again everyone, for offers and for everything ...

so so sad

BlackCat
08-15-2009, 07:54 PM
Well, like you said before, those should have gone first, but you already know that so... the next option may be that the garbage man saw them and took them... that is very likely so you could still see what truck came that day and find out who was on it, speak to them and maybe see if they took them? Contacting them probably would have been my very first course of action (well, after giving g-mom a piece or two of my mind).

It would be really difficult, I can't imagine nor do I want to. I hope you'll be able to get a new collection set up and love it just as much as you did the last.

08-15-2009, 09:03 PM
I'm very sorry she misunderstood the meaning these tarantulas had. I'm sure that doesn't really help, but don't get tarantulas too soon after this.

My mom did this before with my bugs (she's given up after realizing I wasn't going to "outgrow it.") I couldn't even go outside and look for more after loosing my cute caterpillars, spiders and one big Jeruselum cricket - it was frankly depressing.

At the same time, don't let it get your hopes up completely with something you love doing. :)

YES! You just don't do that! Her reference was
'oh you mean those little half-filled jars of dirt you had?'...
I mean OMG I am so pissed!
Not to mention that my adults were in those very cool acrylic cages...
what a loss..
I'm more sad than pissed obviously but man has my blood been boiling...
ugh..
even my people that hate spiders respect my thing for them...

You know it's bad for anyone to do something like this but it's really bad when someone in your family would do this.Living with your grandmother I'm sure she knew how you felt about your collection.There was no point in it except to just hurt you.:mad:

I'm so sorry to hear about your lose. Those who act in evil ways always pay dearly at the end. Don't mean to wish bad things onto anyone, but hey, give us a break.

I hope you'll get over this soon, and that someday you'll acquire replacements down the road. If I can be of any help, don't hesitate to ask.

Miss Bianca I'm really sorry to hear about your loss :[
I don't know how I would deal with that..My first thought would probably be revenge but honestly what would that even solve?
Hey if your going to the next White plains show send me a PM and if your interested I'll bring a spider or to two for ya ;]

I am just now reading this and I have NEVER heard of someone let alone a family member doing this to another. Was she doing this out of spite? Is she a nice person? I just don't understand, everyone where I work and live know how much my T's mean to me and they would never do anything to upset me. I 'm sorry girl, that is just not excusable!!! I'll be thinking about you. You are an adult for crying out loud not a kid that can't make decisions!! I'm just really sorry

A phone call from grandma would have been nice, but whats done is done.

I will send more if you are planning to keep T's again.

Something to remember though, people are more important than things,

(or animals ), don't let it ruin a relationship with grandma, that would be bad too. Two wrongs don't make a right.

I have read your post and I can't believe it. Thats just crazy.

I would like to donate a few of the slings I have breed. If you just pay shipping. We will get you back into the hobby in no time. I know you will miss your pets, but nothing you can do no but, start over Revenge is never a good thing.

Send me a pm if you are interested.

I am SO sorry for your loss!!! It's a horrible experience to go through. I know what you're going through.. I have a feeling MY entire collection's been killed (I left them at my parent's house and said I would come back for them, I now live ten hours away and my dad informed me that they got rid of them via the freezer). Don't know if they really did kill my collection as I have been lied to before, but I definitely know how you feel :( it is an absolutely horrible feeling. When Matt and I get around to getting a couple female blondis for our immature male, you can guarantee we'll be setting aside a couple for you! :D

In a week or so I believe it will have doubled,
and then there's a show coming up in 3 weeks or so.. very excited..

I'd love that!! So cool!

I would be in jail, plain and simple....if a family member or not did this to me....I would do more harm to them then to someone else....they are supposed to love and respect you!! A mop would be need to clean up red fluids....I can't even imagine that, I truly can't! I have quite a few sacs on the way...I will also donate.

P.s wandering spiders are useful sometimes!!

I would only do the above to a man.....never a woman, but she wouldn't have a house that was worth much when I was finished.

Wow.... just .... wow. I've been paying close attention to this thread. I would have been thoroughly hurt and angry. My mom has done similar to a bunch of my 6/8 legged critters before I got into tarantulas. She just assumed it was a phase and I would "get over it." Needless to say, she's kind of figured my interests in these animals are not going to go away.

I just can't fathom doing physical or any other harm to another being, relative or not, even as insensitive as this act was. I, however, have been known in high school for my passive-aggressive tactics. You know, itching powder used to be made with urticating hairs (hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge) ;) :wicked:

I would try to calmly talk to her to let her know that those were not just things to you.

Your love and devotion of our beloved 8 legged children isn't a bad thing, Rob.
Bianca, I'm glad you got the babies I sent to you, I know you will love and cherish them and I know they couldn't ask for a better home.
I suggest your forget your grandmother, she is a hateful, evil old woman who will end up alone and lonely. You get back from the world what you put forth in it, and she will get her evil, hurtful, thoughtless acts returned to her.

I agree with this totally, and have chosen to forget about her
(as far as a relationship is concerned).
I am not fully decided on sueing but haven't ruled it out...

which is great considering at first I wanted to search for a colony of bedbugs
or fleas/ticks. I am slowly on the road to recovery here and have started a
beautiful and humble new collection. (One that includes my first pokie!!! :D)


Thank you all that have written me with kind words and also those that had
offers. I appreciate you all. :)

Everybody here feels the same way about it, and has expressed it in their own way. You said what you needed to, Rob, and you're right. A family is supposed to love and respect you. I don't even want to think about what I'd do if the same thing happened to me.

Congrats on the new collection, Miss Bianca. Karma seems to have really smiled on you for taking this in stride.

Didn't want to start a new thread because it isn't an announcement,
and the pictures aren't really worthy of a separate thread,
so I bought this one back from the dead...

Some pics of my humble and growing new collection..

This is how I have them now, 1"+ tarantulas in blue containers,
and 2-3" in green containers..
bigger ones have Exo-terra breeder boxes until I can improve on enclosures,
because I got a pretty overwhelming response,
(which was great :D ) plus the ones I have purchased..
(and still getting more.. I have empties ready for those)

http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n7/realchulabx/DSCF1979.jpg

I have about double what's shown here, after just a month..

http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n7/realchulabx/DSCF1981.jpg

Slings under 3/4" are kept this way..

What does she mean "thrown out?!" She threw them in the garbage? My god It just horrifies me how thoughtless, careless, and just outright DUMB some people can be!

Does your granny have cats or something? Why don't you dump those off in the middle of some remote location without her knowledge and see how she reacts to that, eh?!

EDIT: I, too, am living with my granny because my college is close to her place. Looks like I better keep a closer watch on my Budgett's frog, which I keep up there with me...

Next time you should get something like a big lionfish. Large, HEAVY tank that cannot be moved. And if she tries to pick the animal itself somehow...OUCHIE!!! LOL!

I'm at 44... until next week... the new estimated amount by the 1st is probably about 60. (Yes!- Some of the packages are surprise packages! :D )

I am glad everything is going to work out for you, i know that feeling you get when somthing goes missing or somthing is stolen taken from you and it really sucks!

I have about 5 different breeding projects going on, I'll make sure to save 2 slings from each sac for you, free of charge.

This last part of the thread made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :o

If I had a helluva a lot of slings I would have loved to donate. All well, hopefully if I can breed any of mine in the future I can help out another like so many have done here.

Some people might think we have a weird hobby, but at least lots of us have good souls. :8o :clap:

A phone call from grandma would have been nice, but whats done is done.

I will send more if you are planning to keep T's again.

Something to remember though, people are more important than things,

(or animals ), don't let it ruin a relationship with grandma, that would be bad too. Two wrongs don't make a right.

I have a question....where do you get these containers/Jars with the Blue,Green Lids? Thanks in advance,Mickey.

I get these in a discount/99cent store that's around where I live.

The ones with blue lids are 2/ $1 and the one's with green lids
are $1.19 each. They are each available with about 4 different colored tops.
They are very sturdy and very clear, which is what I love.

The small are hexagon shape and come in sets of two. Tops have handles.

The larger ones come in square and round, and are also available in a taller style, for the same price.
(Taller like for arboreals, which I may need to get soon.)

I had many with my old collection. Maybe there are some pictures up in the gallery..

'Ya know, I usually hate people (retail will do that to 'ya!)... but this thread has renewed my faith in the few good ones out there! I can't imagine how you must have felt. My husband HATES my animals and threatens to do the unthinkable, but I know he never COULD.

It looks like you have a LOT of mouths to feed now, so I don't know if you'd be interested, but I can certainly help you with a crestie if you'd like. Not sure what shipping would run from the west coast (shipyourreptiles), but you can let me know if you'd like one (before the temps drop too much, though!). I have a crapload of babies, or even a juvie or two you could choose from. Let me know, and I'm glad this has all worked out for you in the end!

WOW... is all I can manage to say at the moment!

My heart broke for you when I read the beginning of this thread, and it made me completely panic at the idea of losing my entire collection...

but to see the amount of compassion, support, and help given to you by everyone here... that is just amazing. Yall are truly an awesome bunch of folk, and it makes me smile that "weirdos who keep big, scary spiders" (as the public would say) are such a supportive group.

I sent Bianca a group of 8 spiderlings and some roaches for feeders and about a week later, she had said that they didn't arrive yet. After a couple weeks , I wrote it off as a total loss and planned at some point to send more.

It was a solid month later when the box arrived and Bianca said that everything was alive and well.
I know that Tarantula's and roaches are pretty tough, but this is truly amazing to me.

That just goes to show that you use superior packing methods.

Yes! It was truly amazing to see everything was well, since I thought what i had received was the replacement package.
It's great.. they were really well-bunkered :)
