At the start of what could be a zombie infestation, one of the first things you need to realise is that, that “thing” in front of you is Not your Mom, your Aunt or your Grandma who passed away last month or a few years ago. That person is still dead.

If you are seeing news reports of zombie activity in or local to your area and that thing in front of you moves like a zombie, acts like a zombie and does not react to any of the usual stimulus that they would if they were still alive, then chances are that they are a zombie.

If they seem to have no reaction (by no reaction I mean, zero reaction at all) to pain or touch and they are grabbing at you and trying to chow down on you then yeah, you have just encountered your first zombie, Z, walker, Rottter, what ever you choose to call them. One of them is in front of you and it is looking at you as though you are an all you can eat buffet.

Now is the time to act, like it or not, you are going to have to kill this thing, if you don’t it will do everything in its power to kill you and it will not stop until either, it catches and kill you or, something else catches it’s attention.

It is said that the best way to “kill” a zombie is by killing it’s brain, this can be done a few ways.

Blunt force trauma to the head and brain, a knife or bullet to the head, either through the side/temple area of the head or through the eye socket, or by completely removing the head from the body.

This, in the early days of a zombie infestation is possibly going to be one of the hardest things you will have to do, especially of you once knew this thing as a person. Sorry, but, that person is no longer here.

As I said earlier in this post. That person is gone, what you are looking at now is a shell, an automaton, a thing that has no feelings, no memory of you and no immotional baggage at all, and it absolutely will not stop.

I know that in this post I have painted a pretty grim picture of what we are facing, but it’s best we do not sugar coat the situation. We will look more into how to mentally and physically prepare for such an event in future posts and videos.

Until then. Stay safe.
