TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -It was a case of mistaken identity that, authorities say, could have gone very wrong.
Authorities say, apparently, a group of heavily-armed border militia members mistook conservationists researching bats for illegal immigrants or smugglers.
It happened Aug. 23 in the Gardner Canyon area near Sonoita where the small group of conservationists was out in the middle of the night conducting a wildlife population survey, in this case, counting bats.
Yup. Scientists. Counting bats. Not "those people" with "calves like canteloupes."
It's only a matter of time till one of these yobbos kills someone. Jacked up, angry yahoos, armed with everything but brains.
