Bats**t crazy

Another reason to leave the Rainforest alone....

Rabid vampire bats killed 23 people and bit more than 1,000 when they attacked residents in their homes at night, officials in Brazil confirmed yesterday. The victims were bitten after the bloodsucking mammals were displaced from their rainforest habitat by continued widespread tree-felling, said the authorities in Sao Paulo. ....Deforestation in Para state is eliminating the bats' habitat and forcing them to seek other areas. - Scotsman and BBC
