Didn`t know they were protected in Norway norwice... Guess you live and learn, ey? Most bats in the world are harmless fruitbats.
They are just stigmatized as to being blood sucking and evil... Weird, innit?

Love those animals. Up close they are really fine. Here in Norway these are endangered and as such protected.

A few years ago I was working in a restaurant (XO in the city of Brandbu) for one rather retarded Turkish family and all of a sudden a bat comes crashlanding on the porch, sliding over the entrance. This made the f* boss Turk go berserk, running after it first with a broom but then just kicking it, again and again, like a football, until out on the street where it died... I simply didn`t know what to say. Speechless, utterly.

F*cking terrorist? Well, f*cking something.
I quit right there and then on the spot.
Hope that idiot has constant diarrhoea or worse, but at least his restaurant is now dead.

Only partially true...

There are also species of bats that eat fruit, some that prey on small birds, and even some that are carnivores and prey on small rodents... These species are also known to attack cattle.

I expect bat probably tastes like rabbit. probably safer to eat, too because bats rarely carry any diseases.

any opinions?

Now you carefully slip a cover between the bowl and the wall. Pretty simple really.

hang on, why is he an arsehole if he caught a bat that appears to be inside his house? Would you prefer he just killed it? Or is it better to catch it and let it go outside where it probably wants to be anyway?

I once snatched a bat out of the air as if flew past me.

(Totally by accident).

My friends to this day think it was intentional, and that I`m a ninja.

I caught one in my house once... I just happened to have a small birdcage, so i kept him for a few days because I accidentally hurt his wing trying to catch him. I fed him apple slices. When I released him he started hanging out (pun intended)in a tree outside my door at night. I eventually hung a 5 inch nail from a string on the tree and put an apple on it once a week for him. (We had an apple orchard nearby, so we got as many apples as we could eat.)

Juggalette - I like bats, but I think its misleading to say they don`t carry rabies - when almost 1 in 200 will get it in their lifetime (according to your link). Presumably they don`t last long once they have it. Over here (UK), when ringing the little critters (rather than trying to bash their brains out with kitchenware) gloves are advised.

@ DFWBrysco it`s actually less than one half of one percent that carry rabies

"Bats don’t ‘carry’ rabies, however, they are capable of catching the disease just like any other mammal. Less than one-half of one percent of bats actually contract the disease. In reality, more people die annually from contact with household pets than have died from contact with bats in all recorded history. This doesn’t mean that it’s okay to touch or handle bats, as they may be afraid and bite in self-defense. Bats are wild animals, and all wild animals can be dangerous. Additionally, grounded bats are more likely to be sick so they should never be rescued bare-handed."

QFT

"Okay, now you take a piece of cardboard and slide it in between the wall and the tupperware, thus trapping the bat. carry it outside, preferably in the shade and release it. It`s really not that big of a deal. "

With the light on, bats usually stick to a wall, so catching it this way is easy.

I caught on in a small cardboard box in my old place a long time ago. Closed the box around it, and took it outside to let it go.

"Considering that only about 6% of all tested bats have rabies, the rate of rabies is the same as any other mammal (i.e., rare)."

Everything is relative. 6% may seem rare.... but if I was bitten by a bat, a 6% chance of death unless I got a rabies shot is common enough for me to rush my ass to the hospital.

"Ever hear of rabies? Bats are a huge carrier of rabies. There is a story of a kid who woke up, was engaged to get married to a woman, and found a bat in his room. He was bit or anything. He died months later from rabies shortly before his wedding day.

Why? The fleas off of the bat gave the guy rabies. Bats may not be out to SUCK YO VLOOD! But they can be deadly none the less."

You know it`s a lame pseudo urban legend when you add the useless fact that the guy was engaged and then he died before he got married.... why do we care? Is this to make the story more dramatic? Too bad these days it takes all of three seconds to google "can fleas transmit rabies." Sad days for urban legends...

Ummm.. DixxyRarr - Bats are mammals, and can develop rabies. However, it is urban legend that they are prone to having it. Considering that only about 6% of all tested bats have rabies, the rate of rabies is the same as any other mammal (i.e., rare).

bat bites are notoriously inconspicuous, so if you ever wake up with a bat in your room, go to a doctor to get a rabies shot. Better safe than sorry, it`s almost impossible to survive rabies once any symptoms set in.

I woke up cause my cat was running around my head and there was this weird flapping noise. Turns out he was playing with a bat that somehow got in my house. I threw a shirt over it and tossed it outside.
Problem solved.
