Re: Happy Bats

Yeah, it's here.  Had some people die from Rabies here, they found  lots of 
bats with rabies.  Bats have always been a bit of a concern, they  seem to like 
to live in the walls of appartment buildings.  So they are  often 
"exterminated", unfortunately.  But it's like that with  everything.  People like the 
beneficial critters (bees, bats, etc.) as long  as they are not IN their house.  
It's not quite as bad as it sounds, like it's open hunting season on bats  or 
anything.  It's basically within apartment complexes where the bats seem  to 
make homes.  In a way I understand, since hundreds can colonize in a  wall, 
the smell of the bat guano is terrible, and they make a ton of  noise.  Now with 
the rabies scare, it has just gotten more  publicity.   There are plenty more 
bats around though.....they sell  bat houses in stores, etc.  so it's not 
quite as bad as one pictures with a  bunch of wild Texans running around shooting 
at bats.  LOL  No  shortage of bats either way in Texas.  There are plenty.  
They even  have tourists that come to view the bats.  People are  always 
warned not to touch the bats, or pick up an injured animal.....to  call animal

I think  Houston or maybe Galveston, 
someplace very humid in Texas is having a heck  of a time with some rabid 
bats and idiots are running around killing every  bat they can find.  Which 
of course is a big mistake considering  their mosquito population.
