Stupid to panic over a bat.

Just let someone slit a vein open, collect some blood into a saucer, then draw the bat in with the bait and cover it with a coat.

/Easy.

Completely useless.  The vast majority of bats are insectivores, with most the rest being fructivores.  Vampire bats are only found in Central and South America, neither of which is where India is located.  You'd have more luck offering it the moldy apple in the stewardess' food caddy.

The real reason everyone got mad is because the bat was in business class instead of economy!

The last time I heard of a story of a wild bat loose on an airplane, everyone on board was urged to get rabies shots because they didn't capture and test the bat. Unless there has been advances in rabies shots since then, that involves 4 painful shots on an annoying schedule.

Bats are cool they eat bugs and are just sweethearts when it comes to cuddles. I wish I could have a bat for a pet.  I would train it to send messages and packages to my neighbors on Halloween.

If I saw a headline saying Bat out of Del from the Sun, I'd assume that the star of Only Fools and Horses slipped and fell on to a cricket bat which had to then be surgically removed.

Now THAT's a Fark story for you

Since all bats are rabies vectors (among other diseases) it was kind of an emergency, yeah.

Probably not as big an emergency as someone trying to open a door to let the thing out.

Pretty much most cases of human rabies infection come out of India as well. Something like 20k deaths per year. Which is ridiculously high.

You know what else messes with your schedule and requires you to get shots?

Never mind one bat, it's the thousands of disease vectors on board these flights that'll kill you.

It's all the wild dogs. They seem to have lots of those since the cow tranquilizers killed all the vultures.

India is an ecological nightmare just waiting to explode, if it already hasn't.

That could very well be the fastest bat that ever lived. Assuming while it was flying inside the plane, the frame of reference was the ground.

Yep. Bats are afraid of people and generally don't come out during the day. So if you see a bat anywhere with people it generally means it is sick and possibly rabid. Shots for everyone involved.
