Bat Boy Found in West Virginia Cave 30 Years Ago; Americans Push to Make June 23rd a National Bat Boy Holiday!

Weekly World News

Weekly World News (WWN) celebrates the 30 th anniversary of its ground-breaking June 23, 1992 cover story “ Bat Child Found In Cave. ” WWN introduced the half-human, half-bat child to readers around the world, and its ongoing coverage has fostered a growing national movement to make June 23 an official National Bat Boy holiday! Weekly World News is celebrating the anniversary with a special tribute on its website. It all started in Pendleton County, West Virginia where Dr. Ron Dillon discovered this unique “creature,” who would become known as Bat boy, living in a cave in the Allegheny Mountains. Explorers captured Bat Boy, who was living almost two miles underground. Weekly World News' Bat Boy reporting went “viral,” spreading faster than any news story could in the days before the Internet and social media – it was a peaceful time. Scientists and reporters quickly learned that Bat Boy is a very skittish and elusive creature who is frequently on the run, often disappearing for extended periods of time. Bat Boy has been known to be quite tricky and unpredictable. He even managed to steal a vehicle and drive it at high speed, leading to a multi-state run with law enforcement in pursuit. When explorers discovered Bat Boy in Hellhole Cave, they estimated his age at around 10 years old. But further research has identified a genetic deformity that has locked Bat Boy in the very same age for the last 30 years. It seems Bat Boy will never age, however his intelligence and global interests continue to grow. Bat Boy has long demonstrated a keen interest in political and social issues which have thrust him into the limelight, as he has befriended and advised a range of U.S. Presidents and candidates for national office. Bat Boy’s political interests even led to an unsuccessful 2020 run for the U.S. Presidency. Close advisors admit that cryptid prejudices along with the candidate’s communications challenges and non-traditional demeanor posed major obstacles in the campaign. Dr. Ron Dillon, one of the foremost experts on Bat Boy, describes him as a “human-bat hybrid creature. His father was likely a bat or a creature heavily dominated by bat genomes, his mother, Susan Boy, was a human being. We have since traced Susan’s ancestry to passengers on the Mayflower.” Bat Boy's life has been nothing short of a whirlwind and even spawned an off-Broadway musical. Weekly World News does its best to keep readers up to date on his comings and goings. In the years since his discovery, Bat Boy has met Travis Scott, Elvis, Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, every living U.S. President. He is adored by most celebrities – though given his reclusive nature, very few have been lucky enough to meet him. In anticipation of his run for president, Bat Boy abandoned his pagan ways and converted to Judaism and then to every other religion, seeking to play a unifying role for all people under his “Right Wing AND Left Wing” platform. He’s also had a busy and sometimes stormy romantic life, dating Farrah Fawcett, Jennifer Lopez, Jean Kirkpatrick, Cher, Kim Kardashian and more recently, Taylor Swift, but never really settling down. Bat Boy has no known offspring. Bat Boy has become a reluctant cultural icon and national treasure, who savors hiding in plain sight. He has been a subject in numerous TV shows and films such as The Simpsons, American Dad, The Boys, 12 Monkeys and many others. When Bat Boy isn't evading the paparazzi, law enforcement or government scientists, he apparently enjoys supporting his fans via surprise appearances in pop culture outlets. Recently, Bat Boy was knighted by the Queen Elizabeth and blessed by Pope Francis, and there are growing rumors about another presidential run in 2024 under his healing and unifying right-wing plus left-wing message. Leaders of the Bat Boy holiday movement urge all supporters to contact their elected representatives to voice support for a National Holiday to honor Bat Boy and his achievements and to demonstrate support for cryptids of all shapes and sizes. Supporters also encourage of Bat Boy themed apparel, some of which is coincidently available in the WWN online store! There are rumors that Bat Boy will be biking with President Biden today, but with Bat Boy, one never really knows.

YourUpdateTV

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, approximately 1 in 4 dogs will, at some stage in their life, develop a tumor, and almost 50% of dogs over age 10 will develop cancer. Recently, Dr. Susan Ettinger, “Dr Sue Cancer Vet”, Veterinary Cancer Specialist and Take C.H.A.R.G.E. Scientific Advisory Board Member, and Lisa Conte, Jaguar Health Founder & CEO, conducted a satellite media tour to talk about the first-of-its-kind national canine cancer registry that offers a ray of hope to dog-lovers everywhere.

The Registry began with a retrospective review of more than 35,000 anonymous canine patient records uploaded into a secure customized database and more than 830 confirmed cancer diagnoses and is interactive.

All research and academia related activities are de-identified and anonymized, following all General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines, to ensure 100% participant and veterinary information protection. Currently there is no published state-by-state registry in the U.S. documenting canine cancer, while there are multiple regional European registries that exist and serve to inform both the veterinary and human oncology communities. The Registry also includes the first nationwide Gallup survey of pet owners addressing their experience with canine cancer. Canine Cancer Impact on Humans - Dealing with canine cancer has a major impact on dog owners’ well-being, including depression, anxiety, lack of sleep, and missing work or other obligations; for example, 63 percent of respondents reported feeling a lot of stress and 58 percent reported feeling down and depressed a lot during their dog's cancer. And, more than 8 in 10 dog owners favor the creation of a canine cancer registry to better understand the disease and advance treatments The survey found that the incidence – the percent of U.S. dogs newly diagnosed with cancer in 2021 – was approximately five times incidence of newly diagnosed cancer in humans that year, which is startling since researchers have assumed that canine cancer rates mirror human cancer rates. A complementary Index was established based on pet owner responses to this multi-year nationwide Gallup survey assessing pet owner experience with their dog’s cancer diagnosis and treatment. Together the Registry and Index provides the veterinary community with important information to guide canine cancer diagnosis and treatment decisions and support dog owners by improving canine cancer care. The Gallup survey closed on March 30, 2022, with over 3,800 respondents, including over 600 responses from dog owners with canine cancer experience. Canine cancer patient records uploaded to the Registry are updated regularly thanks to ongoing input from participating veterinarians and owners of dogs who have been diagnosed with cancer. If your dog passed away from cancer, you can contribute to building hope for all dog lovers by uploading your canine pet’s medical records as well.

Most cancers are treatable, and there are a variety of treatment options. Dr Sue’s focus is to provide comprehensive and compassionate care. She strives to minimize side effects – from the cancer itself and treatment – to help her patients lead active, normal lives even while undergoing treatment. Her motto is live longer, live well. Dr. Sue is most passionate about raising cancer awareness, and she has developed “ See Something, Do Something, Why Wait? Aspirate.® ” to promote early cancer detection and diagnosis. This cancer awareness initiative for skin and superficial tumors in dogs and cats provides a set of guidelines for pet owners and veterinarians to help identify the best management for skin and subcutaneous (under the skin) masses in dogs and cats. Masses must be sampled and evaluated under a microscope to determine what they are. The sooner we determine whether a mass is cancerous and should be removed, the better for our pets. Most skin and subcutaneous tumors can be cured with surgery alone if diagnosed early when masses are small. Early detection saves lives.
