80,000 bats in Australia - level 2
Eighty thousand bats, who infested a park in an Australian city, were driven away by the sounds of horns, helicopters and gun blasts.
The bats’ feces were in people’s yards and on their cars. According to one person, it was sometimes so bad that he couldn’t even open his door. Many locals were pleased to see the animals go.
Others were worried more about the bats than people’s health. One woman even cried for the bats. She said that they had no chance to fly off and save their babies.
The council said it will continue the program for the next ten days to see whether the bats return.
Difficult words: infest (be somewhere in large numbers and cause damage), blast (loud noise), feces (the animals’ waste).
