My goodness, so glad for this forum to be informed...certainly eye opening.

Bloody Rishikesh monkeys! I really loathe all monkeys and this one caught me by surprise as I was talking to someone near Ramjula...fortunately only got a sleeve in his grimy little paws but it gave me a start...
It might be the best of times or the worst of times...but it's the only time you've got!

I saw a woman in Rajasthan hold a bag of peanuts in FRONT OF HER FACE to shake them out for the monkeys. Some would jump as high as her face to grab the bag of peanuts! And she was laughing about it! I thought, lady, one swipe and half your face is gone, keep laughing!

In Ram Jhula I watched a dive off an awning and snatch the lunch packed in an aluminum foil box out of a ladies hands on the way down. They know what the shiny objects are all about. She was frozen in shock for a moment.

This happened just last summer where I live.

A rabid bat bit a UW student last month near Husky Stadium.
"This bat flew up next to them and he was going to move the bat or something and the bat just latched on and started biting his hand," said Mason Fagan, a fraternity brother of the student.
The victim took the bat back to the fraternity, so everyone exposed to the bat was treated to prevent rabies.
Apparently about 1% of the bats around here are rabies carriers and it appears the rates are increasing over time.

Dog Bite in Delhi

Those monkey mums, with their babies. So sweet to watch! From the other side of the road!

Thank goodness there are none were I live. The only one I saw her was chased away by crows.

Hey ho, sounds awful to say this, but the best way to see some wildlife is on TV.

I don't know how many people catch rabies from bats in USA? Is it the same case I keep hearing about, or, several?

People actually getting rabies is rare, one or so case a year. Not sure how many folks get the treatment though.

It IS rare but over the years people have contracted it where I live, maybe one a year. But the media makes out like the bubonic plague has arrived. Speaking of plague, sometimes it makes an appearance like in these cats recently. Or in New Mexico a few years ago.

People are so detached from nature nowadays that they don't know what to do. Common brown bats in my area are NOCTURNAL so don't touch a bat if you see one in the daytime. If it's out in the daytime ON THE GROUND that means there is something wrong with it. DUH.

The plague or its relatives makes an occasional appearance in Socal as well as in India. There is a vaccine if anyone is so freaky..

Considering the kind of pre-death experience infected people get from the virus, it is great that the media respond with alarm to even one case just to keep the memory of its dangers alive.
