Animal experts are on the opinion that Scottish windfarms are causing bats to explode. The small creatures are known to have tiny lungs, which are now exploding thanks to the windfarms in Scotland. How do the windfarms affect the night creatures?
The farms’ turbine blades can cause great pressure in the atmosphere. According to the Bat Conservation Trust, this pressure is causing the bats’ lungs to explode. The mammals are an endangered species in the United Kingdom and the animal experts believe that these farms pose a great danger to them. The bats are able to dodge the deadly blades of the turbines but that doesn’t mean that the vacuum caused by the atmospheric pressure isn’t affecting their lungs.
The corpses have no external signs of injuries. However, the signs of barotrauma are clear. The barotrauma is the term for exposure to extreme changes in pressure. The bats’ corpses showed evidence of ear haemorrhage and pulmonary haemorrhage which is a clear sign for barotrauma according to the experts in Bat Conservation Trust.
