Here’s a news item that sounds so bizarre that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a hoax –
Abbie Hawkins from Norwich, England, was shocked to find that movement in her underwear was caused by a bat that had curled up and fallen asleep in her bra.
The 19 year old thought at first that it was simply her mobile phone vibrating.
Five hours later, however, she summoned up enough courage to investigate her underwear more closely.
When she did, she found a baby bat in the padding of her 34FF bra.
The hotel receptionist said she was shocked when she discovered that her bra had been invaded by a ‘cuddly’ bat.
After being removed the bat scuttled off into the dark before a colleague later caught then released it.
Abbie has been quoted as saying,
It looked quite cosy and comfortable in there so it was quite rude of me to take it out.
When I realised it was a bat the first thing that occurred to me was how did it get in there.
I felt quite sorry for it. Perhaps I should have left it there and given it a good home.
One can only hope that neither the girl nor the bat were too traumatised by their respective ordeals.
