I don’t know about you, but I am going to sleep better. Read Smithsonian.com (October 16, 2013) reports: Hungry Animals Would Take Down a Zombie Invasion.
It appears that we only need to shelter in place or at worst, be able to run faster than you, for about 5 -6 hours.
Apparently if a zombie virus ever did begin turning humans into flesh-craving animated corpses, Mother Nature would quickly quell the invasion, the article allows naturalist David Mizejewski to make the point that in the wild, flesh is considered a delicacy, and, to many a hungry creature, zombies would be walking buffets rather than menaces.
I'm glad to receive the reassurances. Read the entire article, if you have the stomach for it.
