Vampire Bats Kill 38 in Venezuela

Indigenous people in remote Venezuelan villages have been dying from a mystery illness that researchers believe is being transferred from vampire bats, reports CNN. Victims suffer from “fever, body pains, tingling in the feet followed by progressive paralysis, and an extreme fear of water,” which leads to convulsions and eventually death.

Thirty eight have died since June. Experts suspect the disease is rabies, but lab tests have not yet confirmed that.

Vampire bats may be increasingly feeding on humans due to “environmental degradation” (mining, logging and dams) that affects their natural habitat and prey.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
