Thanks for that information, I stand corrected.
I don't understand how anyone can look at our collective actions post industrial revolution and think we have another 150 years left on this planet. The last 150, heck the last generation, has caused so much damage.
bats have always been the major source of rabies infections in domestic animals. Bat bites account for many cases of rabies in our dogs who are not vaccinated. en.m.wikipedia.org...

Right now, the bats in this area are under a different threat: rabies. There have been at least four confirmed cases with two coming after having bitten people.

LOL does the little one carry a jar with holes in the lid? My kids always wanted to keep the fire flys but I made them set them free before they turned in. I love watching the bats fly around the street lights on a summer evening. a reply to: Rosinitiate
The fungus appears to have been introduced to North America from Europe. It has been found on cave bats in 12 countries in Europe, where bats appear to be adapted to, and unaffected by, the fungus. Because bats do not travel between the continents, this strongly suggests the fungus was newly introduced to North America by people — likely cave visitors who transported it on their gear or clothing.
