Japan – three fruit bats rescued – photo available

January 10

Three fruit bats ware rescued in Toyoko Bat World Japan. These bats, as well as a dozen already rescued, are safe now from they horrible life they once had. They were on display in a “Pet Café” with large owls along all walls that saw them as prey . This is a  a disturbing trend in Japan where exotic animals are on display and for a price, you get to handle them. This was horribly stressful for them and they were in constant fear. They were right next to the entrance where a freezing gust of wind would blow directly onto them every time someone came or left. They now have a wonderful life aged of them in a large flight area with other rescued bats of their kind.
