Sword or sub-machine gun? Or grizzly bear?
When the zombie apocalypse comes, what is going to keep you from becoming one of them? Do you haul around heavy artillery and ammunition, or go with a light but vulnerable hand-to-hand approach? It’s fun to speculate about how to best take out a zombie horde, but perhaps the best weaponry we could ask for is already stomping around our forests.
In what should be a fun series of videos dubbed “The Walking Dead vs. Wildlife,” the National Wildlife Federation is taking advantage of growing zombie-mania to educate us about the incredibly efficient meat disposal units living among us. From flesh-eating beetles to vultures to alligators to maggots, the NWF is proposing that the walking dead don’t stand a chance against our wildlife alone.
For example, one large North American bear, by itself, would eat dozens of walkers:
The bear is a particularly formidable zombie-killer. For one, though bears’ diets don’t include just meat, they love to eat carrion — dead flesh. And if bears began to associate the shamble and moan of a walker with an easy meal, bears’ sense of smell — able to pick up food literally miles away — whole populations of the furry tractors would turn into effective zombie-removal systems.
And remember, you never have to reload a grizzly. Or vultures for that matter:
Or voracious beetles:
