Ronald Poppo At Risk of Infection from Rudy Eugene's Mouth; Attended Prestigious Stuyvesant High School in New York

The horrifying Miami cannibal attack has shocked the nation; homeless man Rudy Eugene was shot dead by police in a barrage of gunshots after he was found eating the face off 65-year-old victim, Ronald Poppo. The news has received huge coverage across the nation's media, and some have even come out to suggest it is just a sign of a "zombie apocalypse" taking over the nation.

Poppo was viciously attacked by 31-year-old Rudy Eugene on Saturday in a brutal assault that saw the top half of the victim's face gnawed and bitten off piece by piece by Eugene.

Poppo has amazingly survived the terrible ordeal but is in critical condition, and reportedly only has his mustache and goatee intact on his face.

However, other incidents in Florida in recent weeks have led conspiracy theorists to suggest a "zombie apocalypse" is upon us. A zombie apocalypse is when humans begin to turn into zombies and begin searching for live humans to feed on their brains. The concept has been featured in various movies for decades, and more recently in films such as "28 Days Later" and "Sean of the Dead".

Blog site IHopeRickSantorum has compiled a list of 10 zombie-type happenings in Florida and other states between May 16 and Saturday's attack:

- On May 16, students and teachers at a Florida high school had to be decontaminated after breaking out in a mysterious rash, according to the Huffington Post.

- On May 21, a Bellwood, Illinois, man was arrested after allegedly biting an 18-year-old woman's cheek, according to MySuburbanLife.com.

 

- On May 23, a Spring Valley, Calif., man was arrested for allegedly biting the tip off of his cousin's nose off, according to NBC San Diego.

 

- On May 26, the same day as the infamous Miami cannibal attack, a Florida anesthesiologist allegedly banged his head against the inside of a cop car until he started bleeding following a DUI arrest. He then proceeded to allegedly spit blood in a police officer's face, according to ABC News.

However, for those who have seen the state of Ronald Poppo's face following the terrifying attack over Memorial Day weekend, that most recent incident is by far the most horrifying and gory.

The cannibal attack saw a naked Eugene, who has been reported as homeless, attacking another half-naked homeless man, Poppo. The attack is being blamed on bath salts.

Detectives believe Eugene had been high on bath salts, which is a general aromatherapy product used in baths. But when the bath salts are inhaled or injected, the abuser can become high on the substance, driving them to a high similar to "cocaine psychosis".

The attack happened off a highway in Miami at 2 p.m. where the naked human zombie was eventually shot by police 12 times. Police had repeatedly ordered Eugene to stop eating the victim, but after simply growling at the officers and continuing the gory feast, police were forced to forcefully bring the attack to an end. Eugene was killed by the multiple gunshot wounds.

Witness Larry Vega told WSVN: "The guy was, like, tearing him to pieces with his mouth, so I told him, 'Get off!' The guy just kept eating the other guy away, like, ripping his skin."

Vega then went to call police to assist at the scene.

Graphic images have appeared on the internet showing the state of Poppo's face. His nose has been completely torn away, and all the skin from the top half of his head is gone, leaving a horrifying and disturbing image of the brutal attack. The photos were too graphic to post up on our site.
