I get tired of all these nasty creatures that keep popping up where we don't want them. You know, HERE in the United States.

I mean, can you think of anything with an uglier name than "puss caterpillar?"

The name alone is gross, but that's hardly the worst of it.

Puss caterpillars are NOT to be messed with.

Bri Oteri of Dade City, Florida had an unfortunate encounter with one and has no interest in repeating the experience.

She explains:

So, Florida right now. But these furry little nightmares, according to ABCActionNews.com, can be found as far north as New Jersey and as close to Kentucky as Arkansas.

Too close for comfort, if you ask me.
