WHEN BATS ATTACK: This Is What Happen When You Play Guitar While Camping

Written by Gayne C. Young on September 17, 2014

If there’s one thing I know it is this: bats hate acoustic guitar.

And they especially hate it when it comes via a group of campers.

A party of at least four campers found this out the hard way when a flying rat dive-bombed one of them during an impromptu nature jam in early September.

You Tube poster “Skou Videos” posted video of the event on September 11 along with the description, “Attacked by a rabid bat while camping.”

I’m not sure how “Skou” knew the bat was rabid as at no point during the video was the bat’s head removed and sent to a veterinarian for testing.

Maybe that happened off camera.

I’m not sure and Skou didn’t elaborate in the show notes.

Despite this lack of credibility, the video makes for a fun watch if only because it’s not happening to me.
