Thousands of bats take over a town in Australia

What would you do if 80,000 bats decided to make your town their home?

Huge numbers of the creatures have turned up in North Queensland in Australia.

People there have been using loud noises like helicopters, horns and even fireworks to scare the bats away because they say they're really smelly and poo all over their town!

But bat lovers there say scaring them is cruel.
