The bats may finally be having their revenge on Ozzy Osbourne. According to the Daily Record, the Prince of Darkness must shell out $27,000 to have a colony of bats removed from his estate in Buckinghamshire, England. The bats were discovered while Ozzy was having the house renovated last May, with work halted until Ozzy could comply with various wildlife regulations.
A local council has green-lit the bat removal but a license must be obtained to have them relocated. The intricate process will cost roughly $32,000 CAD.
Ozzy infamously bit the head off a dead bat 33 years ago at a concert in Des Moines, Iowa. The singer mistakenly thought a fan had thrown a rubber bat onstage but when he picked it up and chomped down on it, realized it was real. He had to undergo a painful series of rabies shots as a result.
