Vampire bat attack! Migrant worker becomes first U.S. fatality - U.s. - Catholic Online:
"A 19-year-old Mexican migrant worker who was bitten by a vampire bat in Michoacán, Mexico later fell ill and died while he was working at picking cane sugar at a Louisiana plantation has become the first reported U.S. fatality due to a vampire bat attack. Before his death from a virulent form of rabies, the young man complained of fatigue, shoulder pain, numbness in his left hand and a drooping left eye."
The article, quoting a CDC publication, claims the range of the vampire bats may be creeping northward because of global warming.
