The zombie apocalypse may have hit your local area first, living residents of Montana.

An emergency message flashed on the screens of those watching the Steve Wilkos Show on the KRTV on Monday, warning them about a violent army of the undead wandering the streets. No one is safe.

The message warned of attacks on the living and said more information would follow.

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. Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.

There was no time for safety instructions, however, because the television station quickly pulled the message. KRTV apologized in a statement that said someone had hacked into the system and displayed the silly alert.

"This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency," the statement says.

Well that quashes any speculation that the zombie apocalypse will start in Montana.

Either that, or the television producers are zombies, too — clever ones who don't want you to know they're coming.
