RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) â€” The U.S. Forest Service has closed nearly all its caves in Arkansas to the public in hopes of curbing the spread of white-nose syndrome, a fungus that can be fatal to many bats.
The closure runs until 2019, allowing scientists to conduct tests and prevent the spread of the disease, which has killed nearly 7 million bats in New England and mid-Atlantic states, the Forest Service said. All Arkansas caves on U.S. Forest grounds are affected, except for Blanchard Springs Caverns in Stone County.
