Ozzy Osbourne forced to shell out $27,000 to have bats removed

From the Irony Department: Ozzy Osbourne was forced to 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.  Work was hated until Ozzy could comply with something called the Wildlife And Countryside Act of 1981 and the Conservation of Habitats Species Regulations of 2010.  (You can imagine the stream of expletives Ozzy exclaimed when he heard about this.)  The ironic part is, of course, Ozzy infamously bit the head off a dead bat 33 years ago at a concert in Des Moines, Iowa.  So I guess now the bats have gotten their revenge!
