Vould You Like To Suck My Blood?

Vampires are scary enough, but what about rabid vampire bats?

Rabid vampire bats have killed 23 people and bitten hundreds of others in the past two months in the Brazilian state of Maranhao, local media reported . . .

Some 300 attacks by blood-sucking vampire bats have been recorded in the town. The rabies virus assaults the nervous system and can be fatal unless treated by a vaccine . . .

Of the 23 who died of rabid bat bites, 18 were minors, mostly bitten on the face or fingers.

As long as they stay away from the necks . . .

    Not can beis. Without immediate vaccination, rabies kills 100% of infected victims.
