A little too late for Hallowe'en

Rabid vampire bats in Brazil have killed 23 people.

Some experts have blamed the attacks on destruction of the rainforest, denying the bats of their natural habitat.

But others have suggested the vampire bat population may have grown rapidly, with the spread of cattle farming in the region providing an ample food supply.

So either way it’s nature getting its own back.
