say, 13 centimeters.

The Pteropodidae family.

This is impossible. These bats

only feed on fruit and nectar.

This can't be.

- Excuse me?

- This must be some sick hoax.

Unfortunately, we're certain

this is not a hoax.

Are you saying some bat did this?

I'm afraid so, sheriff.

There's something very wrong here.

This sort of thing is not

supposed to happen.

What's going on?

What is it you aren't telling me?

The number of attacks may be higher.

We've been able to confirm

these five for certain.

Yesterday was the first human

encounter that we know of.

I'd say it was a hell of a lot more

than just an encounter.

The attacks were similar and occurred

here in Texas, all in the past six days.


Dr. Casper?

Bats do not kill people. Period.

There must be an explanation.

One that has nothing to do

with bats, and therefore...

...nothing to do with me.

Miss Casper.

You're right.

But the bats that we're talking about,

they're very...



In what way?

Exactly what are we

talking about, doctor?

The two bats that escaped from my lab

were from lndonesia.

They're test subjects. The Pteropus

poliocephalus in question--

Hold on a minute!

We're talking about flying foxes?

Those are among the most endangered

species in the world.

And the ugliest and largest

bats you ever wanna meet.

Let me get this straight.

Are you saying you're responsible for

the death of those kids?

Dr. McCabe sought our assistance

as soon as the bats escaped.

We're here to stop them before

they kill or contaminate others.


What were you guys experimenting with?

Well, let's just say it was...


I really can't discuss it

any further. I'm sorry.

So we're here to help you find

your infected guinea pigs, is that it?
