THE zombie apocalypse could well be upon us after all.
But who would have thought that the first zombie would speak English and that the apocalypse would be called MDPV? Or that police officers would be the first to be bitten?
Guardia Civil officers in Ibiza are on the lookout for a dangerous substance very similar to cocaine that can be smoked like synthetic marijuana, snorted or injected.

It is said to cause extreme paranoia, psychosis, violent reactions, suicidal tendencies and an uncontrollable urge to bite.
Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), which was first legally sold in Spain as bath salts is now the prime suspect.
It is the same substance, allegedly, smoked by the US cannibal Ruby Eugene, Miami’s Hannibal Lecter, who bit a homeless man’s face back in 2012 before being shot dead by local police.
The Head of the local Anti-Narcotics Police Force in Ibiza warned against the presence of a substance on the island that has caused “an outbreak of extreme violence in patients hospitalised for drug use for the last three or four days” at a San Antonio hospital.
He nicknamed it “Cannibal”, which does not coincide with any of the other names MDPV is known for. He went on to say that it seems to be one of the many substances that “arrive on Ibiza to be tested before they’re sold for consumption around the world.”
“One of the patients was extremely aggressive and he was handcuffed. Many police officers were trying to hold him down on the stretcher and he fell to the floor,” said Matilde Fernandez, one of the nurses working at the San Antonio hospital. “He bit one of the police officers on his hand but he only caused a bruise because the officer was wearing gloves.” she added. The officers had to call for reinforcements to subdue the patient.
The hospital personnel are not surprised by the recent outbreaks of violence. “Every night we attend to six or seven tourists who have been attacked by young Brits with bottles and glasses.” said Fernandez.
The effects of five milligrams of MDPV can last for up to one week. Users feel outside their body and are said to feel no pain, not even fractures.
In fact, Ruby Eugene was first shot by Miami Police officers in his leg and he allegedly did not react to the pain.
Emergency Staff – a private company that attends to many of the people with alcohol and drug intoxications on the island – says drugs have nothing to do with violence or cannibalism.
“No substance can turn anyone into a cannibal. Maybe the person is predisposed to cannibalism.” said company sources talking to the media.
“Every year people talk about pills adulterated with rat poison or cocaine making their way onto the market but after analysing them, we found nothing of the sort, only MDMA (ecstasy).” they added.
