Illinois wildlife officials say a fungal disease killing millions of bats in the U.S. has turned up in Carroll, Pike and Adams counties.
White-nose syndrome has been confirmed in 11 Illinois counties since it was first found in the state two years ago. The first discoveries in Illinois were in 2013 in LaSalle, Monroe, Hardin and Pope counties. It was found in Jackson, Johnson, Saline and Union counties earlier this year.
The disease is named for the white fungus that appears on the animals' noses.
