KILL IT WITH FIRE…Rabid Species Discovered in Utah
I understand that sometimes good things happen when you get bit by a freak animal. Like when Toby Maguire became Spiderman or when Danny Devito got the clap from a penguin. But I draw the line at bats. Bats are horrible, disgusting creatures and apparently they've found some rabid ones in Utah.
According to Fox News:
"Health officials issued a warning after two bats in Salt Lake County, Utah, tested positive for rabies and hundreds infiltrated a school."
One bat was found Aug. 26 at 1000 West and 6970 South in Midvale, and the other on Aug. 29 at Smith Field Park in Draper, the Salt Lake County Health Department said in a Friday news release.
There were no confirmed exposures to the bat in Draper, but the Salt Lake County Health Department has urged parents whose children regularly go to the park to ask their kids about encountering a bat, and contact the department if anyone touched or was touched by a bat." (Full Article)
Rabies is serious business. Just ask my friend Bob Sacamano.
And spare me the jokes about some kid in Draper becoming Batman or whatever. The last thing we need is another Batman story. The last one lasted three hours and I couldn't tell what the heck was going on. Here's a little advice: once Hans Zimmer climaxes the movie should end. There shouldn't be another act. This isn't Gone with the Wind. We all have things to do.
Long story short. Literally two bats have been found with rabies and we're supposed to care about that? I assumed all bats had rabies. Who cares.
