Stomper Mitch came across the carcasses of more than 10 bats in Lentor Avenue this morning (Jun 2).
He wonders what could be the cause of the deaths.
Said the Stomper:
“I found bats’ dead bodies scattered on the grass, pavement and road on Lentor Avenue this morning, 2 June.
"In total, there were more than 10 of them. I posted a few photos here. It looks like they have been dead for a day or two.
"What could be the cause of this? Pesticide or some other reason?”
These appear to be Asiatic Lesser Yellow House Bats (Scotophilus kuhlii). One possibility is that a bat roost in the area was cleared out by people using methods that proved to be lethal in the end.
