Bat Nest Falls Into Sink After Man Removes Air Conditioning From Wall

Colony of bats falling into the sink in the kitchen after a man removes an air conditioner from a wall.

Smartphone footage recorded in a family home in the city of Binzhou, in China’s eastern province of Shandong, shows bats falling straight into the sink after an installation worker removed the AC on 13th January.

In an interview with Chinese media, he later revealed that the nest contained more than 20 bats that were later disposed of.

The video triggered an avalanche of comments after it was shared on China’s version of TikTok, Douyin, on 15th January.

The uploader, name not disclosed, said: “Attention to regular inspections!

“On 13th January, in Binzhou, Shandong, workers, while dismantling and replacing an air conditioner, discovered a nest of bats inside the air conditioning.

“There were approximately 20 bats, and using the air conditioner resulted in an unpleasant odour.”

Then user ‘Stir-fried Xiaojun liver’ commented: “All of this hair looks disgusting.”

And ‘Wow wow wow wow’ added: “I thought they were mice but I didn’t expect them to be bats.”

The video has been liked more than 15,000 times and shared another 21,000 times as of 16th January.
