Vampire bats feasting on humans

July 20th, 2009 The destruction of the Amazon rainforest through logging, mining and road construction is causing vampire bats in Peru to feast more regularly on the blood of humans. Wildlife is disappearing and so the bats are turning to our blood, and as a result, outbreaks of rabies are on the rise, killing people in places where the disease was rare.
