The National Park Service is partnering with several states in the Rocky Mountain region to limit the spread of a disease found in bats called White-Nose Syndrome.

In June, the disease was found at Badlands National Park, and the nearby Fort Laramie Historic Site in Eastern Wyoming.

The park service says interagency efforts are underway to limit the spread of this deadly fungus into cave areas in northern Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota.

Holly Krake is a spokesperson for the park service.
