I can't be the only person who this occurs to; rabid bats = vampire bats, right?  I mean they have fangs, don't they?  Ok, in all fairness I've never actually seen a bat all up close and personal.. like in real person.  Only in pictures.  They look like flying hamsters or mice.  So rabid ones.. vampires or no?

I mean, look- just look at those fangs.  I'm not even sure that this is a rabid bad...it's just a bat and that is bad enough.  Fangs.  No.

Anyhoo, there was a rabid bat found at Lake Harriet in the twin cities.  Anyone who might have been there and may have come into contact with this bat needs to get checked out.

And aren't they blind??  They use built in radar to find their way around as they are flying a million (might be slightly less than that) miles an hour!  There is one good thing, however.  Bats to eat a butt load (scientific term) of mosquitos.  So- eat little guys, eat!  Just don't eat or bite me.  Thanks in advance.
