The BBC article that you cited above has links at the end of it to other attacks in South America in 04, and 05, but those were in Brasil. I
appreciate you article and those links.
I also found this small article on bat attacks in Peru from 2007.
My theory is that the bat population exceeds certain levels every few years, and with how prone they are to getting rabies, the bats have a feast
every few years, the local goverment kills off a bunch due to media pressure, and than it comes back in a few years.
Nasty stuff vampire bats.
