Mysterious bat-killing illness previously seen in the U.S. now in Ontario
A mysterious illness that has killed upwards of 500,000 bats in the northeastern United States has now been detected in the animals in Ontario. The Ministry of Natural Resources is confirming the first case of bats with a disease known as white-nose syndrome in the Bancroft-Minden area, in eastern Ontario.... It was first documented in Albany, N.Y., in the winter of 2006. Since then, the syndrome has spread across nine states in the northeastern U.S. and has wiped out anywhere from 75 to 98 per cent of the overwintering bat population. Ontario says it will continue monitoring for the syndrome until bats leave hibernation sites in May.
