Harry Potter: 10 Terrible Acts Committed By Hogwarts Professors
10. Rubeus Hagrid – Instructed Harry And Ron To Follow The Spiders
Towards the end of The Chamber of Secrets, Hagrid tells Harry and Ron to ‘follow the spiders’ into the Forbidden Forest.
Before long, the pair of them encounter a horde of blood-thirsty acromantulas led by Aragog. Though Harry and Ron learn some useful information from their venture into the forest, it’s a miracle they managed to escape. Had Mr Weasley’s Ford Anglia not turned up in the nick of time, the pair of them would have been eaten alive.
Hagrid – who has a soft spot for terrifying monsters – was completely ignorant to the fact that sending students into the forest might be a bad idea. Whilst his desire to care for all magical creatures is admirable, in this instance, his love of monsters nearly resulted in the deaths of Harry and Ron.
