This shocking development on the Gold Coast Australia(no not where the moustached one was born), highlights the dangerous bat problem growing there.
The Hendra virus carried by bats is a killer.
Below is the link

Oh interesting. Quite rare it seems.

Also, troubling there is no known treatments after infection develops? Hmmm.

The article mentions prior cases a decade ago. I wonder what happened to those individuals?

Yikes! No treatment either! Sounds like isolated events thus far, let's hope more bats don't begin carrying the virus.
So what's up with the " moustached one?" History please

Some say round the campfires that they may have" turned"..but Iam sceptical, the Hendra virus , from bats infects horses and dogs, and people coming into contact with the animals can contract the virus which is usually fatal...with no known cure.

Yes isolated thus far...but the Gold Coast council has called for random testing of the huge bat colonys there.
It could be that one in two bats are carying the virus once testing shows the results.

I read the article and found it interesting.

I read one of the comments from that article

Seriously! TWO people have died after contracting lyssavirus EVER and there's mass panic. 2500 people die of the flu every year and no one give a toss. You people are nuts!

Well I didn't want to get all offended by the anti aussie comments as I've done my fair share of slagging off seppo's......er...I mean Americans in my time.

Whatever. never knew my innocuous little country was so disliked

The point is ...folks this is a thread about BATS, not a thread about Aussie baiting.
Pretty simple thread =bats.
This attack could just be a precursor to a mass attack of bats on Humans.
It could be very serious

I wonder if it's a CIA/Mossad/MI6 plot to test some new "BAT RADAR" !!
maybe these are the next "terrorists" !


Bat Terrorizes Passengers on Airplane



While snakes on a plane might be scary onscreen, a bat loose on an Atlanta-bound flight proved to be horrifying, causing passengers to duck for cover.

The flying mammal appeared about 15 minutes afer Delta filght 5121, operated by Atlantic Southeat Airlines, took off from Madison, Wis., on Friday, cruising around the cabin and above passengers' heads, NBC LA reported.

"The captain called the control tower to say the plane was returning to the airport ro remove a winged animal," said Brent McHenry, spokesperson for the Dane County Regional Airport in Madison.
