Animal Welfare Act
A USDA veterinarian reviewed video of Amanda Lollar of Bat World Sanctuary trying to perform surgery on a bat. Ms. Lollar is not a veterinarian and has not gone past the ninth grade. The USDA veterinarian stated "This mother bat clearly experienced pain and suffering at Ms. Lollar's hand, so much so that it appeared to lose consciousness during the procedure." "I believe the mother bat could have survived if it had been properly anesthetized and the pup delivered using proper surgical techniques." Mom and pup died at the hands of Amanda Lollar.
