Watch out for things that go bump in the night… we hear there’s a giant mutant spider dog on the loose!

Residents of a town in Poland got the fright of their lives recently as a gigantic mutant spider wreaked havoc on the streets.

Okay, okay… so maybe it wasn’t actually a mutant spider. There’s a small chance it might have been a dachshund mix named Chica dressed up in (an admittedly scary) giant spider costume. In the dark, it’s pretty hard to tell the difference, we’ll grant these prank victims that much.

YouTube user SA Wardega thought it would be dog-gone hilarious to use Chica to scare the tar out of random strangers, and ummm… we can’t say we disagree. In fact, we nearly died laughing. Just don’t send any giant mutant spider dogs our way in the middle of the night (pretty please?).

Check out the video below to see these poor folks’ hysterical reaction when they come face-to-face with this terrifying “mutant”.

And if you’re inspired to scare the crap out of your friends, family, or neighbors… We’ve got you covered. Whether you have a tiny Shih Tzu or a chunky Lab, with some clever costumes, you can terrify your loved ones- although I admit that the giant mutant spider works best if your pooch is small or medium-sized. It makes it seem more ‘realistic’, ya know? So without further ado, here are some of the scariest spider costumes for dogs- pick one that you think will make your four-legged bestie look the part.
