Montana TV Station Warns Of Attacking Zombies
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

KRTV viewers in Great Falls, Montana were interrupted by a bizarre emergency message yesterday: Zombies On The Attack.
(SOUNDBITE OF EMERGENCY MESSAGE)
UNIDENTIFIED MAN: The bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living...
