Somehow a bite strikes me as a bit more than "threatening". . .

CTV Edmonton - Bat attack prompts partial closure of national park - CTV News:

"Parts of Jasper National Park are off limits for several days after a woman was bitten by a bat suspected of having rabies.

Wildlife officials are keeping people out of the area for that time period.

The woman was sitting at a picnic table when a bat swooped down and bit her on the arm. She managed to snap a picture before it flew away. From that experts have determined it was either a northern or western long-eared bat.

It's believed the animal had rabies since it was going against its nocturnal habits and was acting in a threatening manner."
