There’s a warning about a fungus that is killing bats in Wisconsin.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources says white nose syndrome is devastating the state’s little brown bats. White nose first appeared in the state in 2014, and bat numbers have plummeted ever since. The fungus is not deadly per-se, but does stop bats from hibernating and that can lead to all manner of health problems. DNR researchers say they are looking for a treatment for white nose syndrome, but haven’t had much luck yet.
