    When my sister was in high school, she had a pool party with lots of friends. Afterwards we got a call from one of the mothers saying that her daughter had Hepatitis A. Everyone who had been in contact with her, including all the kids at her school and our family that hosted the party, had to get shots. When my mother asked the other mother why she had allowed her daughter to go out, the woman replied, "She wanted to go to the party so badly, I couldn't say no."

    Shockingly stupid and inconsiderate.

    Bats in Africa and China are significantly large compared to the puny N. American species.

    Not an ingredient I would consider for soup! or a pet.

    Myself, I'm not going to complain if the gov starts a campaign to illiminate mosquitoes, rattlesnakes and bats.
    Humans need to be safe first. I believe nature will adapt and survive without those three killers.

    I would.

    ecological systems depend on creatures we might not like too - like bats, rattlesnakes, mosquitoes.

    Humans need to respect that.

    and how do you expect the government would be able to do this anyway??

    most every other man made interference with nature has ended badly - I dont think this one would end well either

    Well, some countries are:

    Both Spain and the Netherlands are killing minks.

    Yes, I did read that information. Did you know that there are rat farms in Vietnam? That the demands of the cuisine in China and elsewhere mean that there are bat and rat farms in asia? What do you think about the fact that there are many Sars type viruses that live in bats and they are sold in open markets in Asia every day?

    I'm not here to demand anything or condemn anyone, just would like to know if your philosophy for animal species extends to the extreme circumstances of asia and its effect on the coming possiblilty of mor Pandemic virus infection?
