North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission officials confirm that white-nose syndrome — a disease that's led to the death of millions of bats in the eastern U.S. — has been found in an abandoned mine in Haywood County. It's the fifth county in North Carolina to confirm a case of the disease.
The deadly bat disease known as white-nose syndrome is probably present in Buncombe County, according to a new report from the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. The news raises the number of affected counties in Western North Carolina to four. Since its initial appearance in a New York cave in 2006. the fungal disease has killed bats at a startling rate. Biologists worry that mortality from the disease is so high, we may be witnessing an extinction event. Photo by Jonathan Welch
