Hi. So I stumbled over this article, published just 6hours ago. Apparently they have discovered 6bats with rabies in Kalmar. Kalmar is a little town i Sweden, about 60km from where I live.

And I came to think of that thread that was started here on ATS about a month ago about weaponizing rabies, and now this show´s up. Thoughts? A coincident? Probably yes.

Sorry for the BAAAAD thread, but Im really tired and just wanted to get this out before i get to sleep.

Rabies is not uncommon in bats.

Bats are quite common as carriers/vectors for rabies

Yeah, I have come to that realization. But i n sweden we first discovered anti-bodys for the virus in bats in 2009, so it´s kinda new here.

At least they're just carriers though. Imagine rabid bats attacking people!

Rabies is a fatal disease. Each year, tens of thousands of people are successfully protected from developing rabies through vaccination after being bitten by an animal like a bat that may have rabies.
