GREAT FALLS, MT – The words ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ seems so last year! We had crazies running in the streets high on bath salts, and people anxiously awaiting the end of the world on December 21, 2012. All of that came and went, but the zombies are still around, at least in Montana.

A television station’s regular programming was interrupted, not for severe weather or breaking news, but because of everyone’s worst fear: A Zombie Apocalypse!

The broadcast came on with a voice-over saying ‘Civil authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living. Follow the messages on-screen that will be updated as information becomes available.’

The message went on to tell people to staying away from the living dead because they were considered dangerous.

Now, now, before you go getting your emergency zombie apocalypse survival kit, it was all a prank. The network says hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System and made the phony broadcast.

Engineers are still investigating and the dead are still dead!
