The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding at the WSAVA World Congress in Cape Town, South Africa, agreeing to work together towards four key goals - to raise awareness globally of animal welfare issues, to promote animal welfare education, to deliver companion animal programmes including humane and sustainable population management and canine rabies control, and to engage the global veterinary community on animal welfare and ethical issues.

Deadly spider found in supermarket bananas

A family has been left traumatised after finding the world's deadliest spider in one of their shopping bags. The Brazilian wandering spider - whose bite can kill within two hours - was found in a home delivery from Waitrose.

According to the Mail on Sunday, the customer, who has been identified only as Tim, found the spider while unpacking bananas and managed to identify its species online. A sac containing hundreds of spider eggs was also found.

Brazilian wandering spiders are usually found in South America and appear in the Guinness World Records as the world's most venomous spider.

The RSPCA and the police both said they were unable to help deal with such a dangerous animal, according to the Mail on Sunday's report. Pest control expert Steve Trippett was called in and succeeding in killing the eggs by freezing them and trapping the spider, which became aggressive.
