Fears are rising among Ndola residents over allegations that fruit eating bats which have infested Ndola’s Northrise area may carry rabies.
Millions of bats have infested Ndola targeting three houses and have been described as a nuisance because of constant noise and excreting indiscriminately in the affected houses.
The migratory bats are not indigenous to Zambia and are believed to have started finding a safe place in Northrise as far back as 1998.
Bats are mammals that give birth, breastfeed offsprings and have their head facedown when resting.
