A terrified mom fled her home in Queensland, Australia, after 5,500 maggot-filled dead bats turned up in her yard.
Philippa Schoor found the bats outside her front door and said the dead creatures were filled with maggots when she found them in her front yard.
A powerful heatwave is to blame for the winged animals’ deaths, with many locals saying they saw thousands of bats fall from the sky.
The disgusting stench from the dead bats has caused disruption in the nearby community, with a Christmas carol service even being canceled as a result of the smell, the Courier Mail reported.
Schoor and her two children were moved to temporary accommodations and have been there for the last five nights.
She said: “It was a scene out of a horror movie and there is still putrefied rotting carcasses are everywhere.
“I cannot return home until I get a cleaner to scrub my walls, furniture, linen, vehicle upholstery before the smell has permeated everything.
“This is a public health issue.”
The recent heatwave has reached temperatures of 104 Fahrenheit.
One local told the Daily Mail that she saw an entire colony of bats “hanging in trees or dead on the ground.”
She added: “In those yellow plastic bins are at least 60 to 80 dead bats.
“And then in every bag you see there’s another 20 to 25 dead bats from behind my house.”
Volunteer groups in Queensland are joining efforts to remove over 2,000 bats from her yard.
Division 1 councilor Brett Moller, who has seen the mass animal deaths first-hand, says an emergency meeting with the mayor was held on Monday to determine what the next move is, the Daily Mail reported.
Cairns Far North Queensland Wildlife estimates more than 500 baby bats – known as pups – are now orphaned and in care.
