    Guinea Bans Bat Eating to Curb Ebola Spread, Warns on Rats
    By Ougna Camara Mar 26, 2014 10:39 AM CT

    Guinea has forbidden the sale and consumption of bats and warned against eating rats and monkeys as the country combats a spread of Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever with a mortality rate of as much as 90 percent.

    “We discovered the vector agent of the Ebola virus is the bat,” said Remy Lamah, the country’s health minister, in an interview from the town of N’zerekore today. “We sent messages everywhere to announce the ban. People must even avoid consumption of rats and monkeys. They are very dangerous animals.”

    Let's not pass judgement here, who doesn't love the crispy crunch of deep fried bat!
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    No need to miss it AA ...

    I'd bet if you caught one yourself, and took it over to Pat45, he could turn it into a culinary delight!

    Ozzy Osbourne would be okay there, since he just bites the heads off, he doesn't actually eat the bat.
