Thieves Steal Ancient Poison From Museum
#1
Where's Indiana Jones when you need him? Authorities are trying to track down an ancient vial containing a deadly poison, stolen from the Dutch national museum of science and medicine this week. Thieves broke into an outbuilding at Leiden's Rijksmuseum Boerhaave and took a refrigerator-sized safe holding a small amount of money and a glass bottle of curare, used by South American tribes to poison arrows. "It was offered to us recently as part of a collection, but we decided we didn't want to have it" and were "going to have it destroyed safely," the museum director tells AFP.

Thieves will probably hurt themselves with the poison, sounds like they were their for the money and took the poison as an afterthought. Dumb asses may even try drinking it.

What kind of curare?

What poisons?

That is what I want to see.

I have studied curare poisons.. From South American tree frog secretions to the dreaded Haitian zombie puffer fish toxin.

Anyone have any idea?
