Accorsing to CDC rabies specialist James Ellison, thermal imaging is now providing new ways to detect rabies in live animals (especially bats), thus providing a means of eradicating them before they can pass on the disease to others.

Thanks for the article Dianne. What bothers me is that they purposely infected bats with rabies to study them. And how do they plan on controlling the spread; kill all the bats in a colony? We have a terrible problem with white nose syndrome, which we have been trying to control without much luck. When Spring comes it will probably continue its spread into the Western US. Bats are incredible pollinators and help keep our bugs under control. We need to find a cure for rabies and white nose syndrom so we can help bats stay healthy.
