Fruit Bat Killed by Squirrel

It was a weird story of how a squirrel killed a fruit bat recently.

The bizarre incident was witnessed by zoologist Mr William Stanley, while he was conducting fieldwork in the forests of Tanzania.

"No-one has recorded this type of behaviour or incident before," says Mr Stanley, who saw the squirrel try to kill the bat in a tree above his head."

It`s unlikely the squirrel killed the bat for food, as they aren`t meat eaters.

One possibility is that the bat got too close to the squirrel`s food, or it`s youngsters.

Or of course the squirrel might have been a bit crazy!
