VIROQUA, Wisc. — A fishing trip ended in a spooky find for two fishermen from Wisconsin.

WITI-TV reported that Mike Jacobs and Bill Wobbekind spotted a double rainbow after a strong storm during a recent trip to western Wisconsin.

One of the men took several photos. They said they didn’t notice anything strange — until they went home and uploaded the photos to a computer.

Jacobs said he believed one of the photos was smudged — and then he saw eyes.

Wobbekind and Jacobs are convinced they may have captured ghosts on film.

But, in reality this is not the case, most bats pose little or no threat to humans and are actually an incredibly beneficial species to humans. Bats can eat millions of bugs in one night which means that farmers don’t have to use as much pesticide when bats are around. Not to mention, bats are pollinators.

However, the bat population is greatly threatened by a disease known as white nose syndrome, in addition to habitat loss and climate change. White nose syndrome is a form of fungus that grows on bats when they are hibernating. So far, six million bats have died from this disease so far.
