How Not to Kill a Bat

A Minnesota man is in trouble after trying to use a .38 to kill a bat that got into his home. Apparently the bullets penetrated the walls of a nearby townhouse. If you insist on using a projectile weapon to kill a bat, I’d suggest an air gun. But really, bludgeons work fine on bats. When I had one in the house once, I just threw a trash can over it, scooped it up, and let it outside.

    Or at least shotshells. I know they make them in .38spl.

    Tennis racket is probably the best implement out there.

    Used a racket myself once. Some youg guys that worked where I do used to get in the attic of an old warehouse and play bat the bat, using 2x4s or whatever they could find.

  4. Maybe it was a vampire and he had silver .38 special bullets, to be, you know, environmentally friendly.

    Or, maybe he was just an idiot.

    M2HB.

    Go big or get rabies.

    We had a bat fly through an open sliding glass door in a hotel in the mountains one time during an intimate moment- a pillow swung like a bat killed the poor bat.

    Rule 4: Be sure of your target. Know what it is, what is in line with it and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you haven’t positively identified.

    Had a bat. Used a blanket. Catch and release. Easy.

    He should have the home more thoroughly inspected – he may have bats in his belfry.
