Help bats avoid a CATastrophe this summer
The Northern Ireland Bat group is appealing to cat owners to keep a close eye on their pets this summer.
Millions of families enjoy the companionship and affection of their pet cats. Only when these loveable feline friends bring in a damaged bird or bat as an offering are we reminded that they are natural predators. A survey carried out by the Mammal Society suggests that cats could be killing 275 million creatures a year, including a large number of bats. People might wonder how this is possible as cats can’t fly! When insects are flying low or crawling in long grass, bats may come down to ground level to feed and so will be easy prey for cats and they may also hear bats chattering before they emerge from their roost at dusk, and lie in wait. During late July and August in particular the young are still far from perfecting their flying techniques and fall easy prey to a prowling cat. Cat owners can help this summer by following these actions:
At this time of year, people may also come across grounded bats which are likely to be very young or injured. The public are advised to only handle the bat if essential; as with any wild animal use thick gloves. Place the bat in a box and contact your local bat worker immediately. For more information on bats, to request a bat talk or survey for your community group/school or to report grounded bats please call028 71363 133 or email email@example.com
