WE’RE CONCERNED ABOUT: Bat Flu

Sorry folks, the dreaded Swine Flu is so last month! Now, scientists in the know are fixing their sights on Bat Flu — the latest animal malaise du jour.

The disease has begun popping in seven East Coast states where it has claimed the lives of at least half a million bats.

Yikes!

While vampire-phobes may applaud, the bats are basically harmless and are a key element in controlling bugs and pests in these regions. Indeed, scientists say literally million of pounds of extra creepy-crawlies will now survive the summer season and potentially cause havoc to humans and agriculture.

So far, the disease appears to be bat-to-bat. For now!
