Erratic bat behavior at Great Smoky park

4 posts in this topic

In the dead of winter, bats should be in a deep sleep. But at Great Smoky Mountains National Park, they’re out and about, flying erratically in many cases, acting crazy.

Out of nowhere, they’ve launched their mouse-sized bodies at unsuspecting visitors, forcing people to shoo them off with fishing poles, walking sticks and their bare hands. At least one bat flew smack into a trail walker’s forehead.

That's a beautiful park and I love it there but I wouldn't take to sharing the trails and woods with bats! I hope they aren't sick - it would be a real blow to agriculture interests in the region.

This is bad, its that fungus that is in the bat population. I'm afraid it will kill off the entire species. They eat so many bugs they will be sorely missed.
