A mystery predator is creating undead 'zombie butterflies' in Pacific Grove

Oh man, this is CREEPY!  Poor butterflies! 


There's a spooky mystery brewing at the famous monarch butterfly sanctuary in Pacific Grove.

Each morning, anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred butterflies are found flying through the air — dead.

"We find monarch butterflies that are missing abdomens early in the morning. Seemingly something's eating them just before sunrise," Nick Strong of the Pacific Grove Museum told KSBW. "... They still have their brains and legs and everything so they can still move around a little bit."

The zombie butterflies, as they're being called, can fly around for a few hours until they finally drop to the ground, dead. It's the second straight year this macabre sight has been witnessed, but scientists still don't know what's causing it.
