Christie Kills Spider in Front of School Kids, PETA Not Pleased

Governor's Office/Tim Larsen(TRENTON, N.J.) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is taking heat from the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals after killing a spider in front of fourth-graders.

Christie was hosting the kids in his office when a spider made an appearance. He joked that the fun part about being governor is that you're allowed to kill bugs on your desk and not get in trouble.

PETA called Christie's actions "thoughtless."

Christie’s office posted a video of the event on the governor’s Facebook page; it’s titled, “Governor Christie Saves School Children From Spider.”
