News Bite: Vampire Attack In Wellington, New Zealand
We don’t get vampire bats in New Zealand, but hey, we don’t need them. We’ve got real vampires prowling the streets. Don’t believe me? Well, ask the man walking home after a party in Wellington who was attacked and bitten (yes, you read that right) by his friends. Apparantly there was some altercation. One of the ‘vampires’ was angry that the victim was chatting up his girlfriend so, naturally enough, decided to bite him. His two mates bared their fangs and joined in too.
The vampires were subsequently captured by the police and said in their defence that they had not intended to draw any blood. Is that the vampire equivalent of smoking but not inhaling?

I’ll leave you with a little interesting fact:Vampire bats don’t suck blood. They make a small circular cut with their sharp incisors, wait for the blood to start seeping out, and then use their tongue to lick the blood.
