White nose syndrome confirmed in Wind Cave NP bats

White-nose syndrome, a fungal disease that kills hibernating bats, has been confirmed in Wind Cave National Park.


According to a news release from the National Park Service, samples recently tested revealed two confirmed cases of the disease and five probable cases in bats, the first confirmation of white-nose syndrome in bats in Wind Cave this year. It was previously found in bats in Custer County in 2018, the park service said.
