Batemans Bay Overtaken By Mass of Bats

Batemans Bay in New South Wales, Australia is in a state of emergency because it has been overrun by a swarming mass of 100,000 bats. The grey-headed flying foxes are on almost every surface and in every tree in the town. The bats make a constant racket and residents cannot open their windows or hang their washing out.
Since they are a protected species they cannot be culled and authorities are considering hosing trees down with 'bat deterrent', and using giant inflatable tube men in an attempt to scare them away.
