Bed Bugs in New York City and Rabid bats in Los Angeles: No wonder there is flight to middle America!

Maybe the election told us more than we thought. Independent  Middle America voted for Republicans because their districts and states don’t have Bed Bugs and Rabid Bats. Environmentalists who disdain  TNT and other pesticides are causing the inner cities to be overrun by pests.   In this instance the Precautionary Principle has failed.  Who’s sorry now?  You made your bed… now Lie in it! Oh and watch you head!

Due to an unusually high number of rabid bats found in Los Angeles County this year, public health officials are asking all residents to avoid touching any wild animals and to make sure their pets have up-to-date vaccinations.

Officials do not know why 21 rabid bats have been detected in 2010 so far when the past annual average is 10. But they are issuing the warning because most of these wild animals have been found in and around residential homes. One person was bitten while attempting to rehabilitate a sick bat.

Rabies is a serious viral illness that affects the central nervous system and could cause brain disease and death.

“Make sure that children know to leave bats and other wildlife alone and keep pets away from wild animals,” the L.A. County Department of Public Health said in a statement. “If you see a sick bat or other sick animal, contact your local animal control agency.”
