The Bat Conservation Trust has issued a response to Bear Grylls and the discovery channel after the ‘role model’ made a program which showed bats being killed in Asia. The program showed military tough guy grylls first throw a flaming torch into the cave to smoke out the bats. When the bats exited the cave TV hard man Grylls first swatted the 50g bats to the ground and then stamped on them.
Grylls then presumably went back to his five star hotel and had something nice to eat.
Conservation groups across the globe are obviously outraged by this and The Discovery Channel are under pressure to take the programs off air.
