Sizzling Flying Foxes, Batman!


Thousands of Country Energy customers lost power last night after a colony of flying foxes flew into a supply line on NSW's north coast.

The incident left 10,500 homes and businesses from Yamba, Maclean and Iluka without power after 9:00pm AEDT yesterday.

Some flying foxes died as a result.

When I was a boy the bat signal shone out at night, right enough but no bats died.



  1. Well I'm sorry for the people that lost their power supply, but a shame about the flying foxes.

  3. I knew it. We DO need the bat signal....
