This October 2008 file photo provided by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation shows a little brown bat suffering from white-nose syndrome, with the signature frosting of fungus on its nose, found in a New York cave. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources said Thursday, Feb. 28, that the disease that has decimated bat populations in the eastern United States has been detected in four counties in far southern Illinois.
