FOREST GROVE, Ore. (CBS Seattle) – Earlier this month, a local resident called 911 because she was afraid of an invader in her home – a spider that she described to the operator handling the call as a “massive freaking creature.”

The unnamed, panicked teen called after discovering the arachnid on a piece of furniture, KPTV is reporting.

“I’m home alone and there is a giant spider on the back of my couch, and I’m talking giant,” she was quoted as saying in 911 records obtained by the station. “I’ve never seen a spider this big and I have no idea what to do.”

After some contemplation, and a genuine plea for advice from the caller, the operator ultimately sent a Forest Grove officer to the residence, though, as authorities noted, it is not standard protocol to do so.

According to KPTV, the spider was estimated to be about two inches in diameter.

The officer ultimately killed the spider with a newspaper.
