Something out of a Hollywood horror flick

When residents of St. Marys, Ont., woke up Friday morning, their town looked like something out of a Hollywood horror flick.

The main street was literally covered in blood.

Chicken blood poured onto Queen Street around midnight when a tanker truck spilled its load from a Schneiders poultry plant.

Provincial police say the driver was charged with having an insecure load after a valve broke on the truck and sent blood gushing into the road.

The Ontario Environment Ministry and the town’s public works department were on the scene cleaning up the spill.

The odour was strong, but sand was spread on the blood to help the cleanup proceed smoothly.
