Japanese Man Releases Hundreds of Worms In Train Screenshot-sm 7

In an attempt to make the entomologists in "The Silence of the Lambs" look like Cary Grant, a Japanese man released hundreds of beetle larvae inside a express train to try to scare female passengers. In his words, "I wanted to see women get scared and shake their legs." "He would go close to women on the train, any woman, and pour out the worms from containers," said a police spokesman. He had 10 containers in his backpack, estimated to contain a total of 3,600 worms.
