Amanda Lollar of Bat World Sanctuary stated that the emails in the article are fake. No, they are not. I did a Freedom of Information Act request a few months back to get these documents. I posted them online last week and people have been commenting about them and writing articles.
I reported Amanda Lollar of Bat World Sanctuary for animal cruelty and violations of the Animal Welfare Act. I gave them a video of Amanda Lollar cutting into a bat with scissors. After viewing the video a veterinarian for USDA stated that Amanda Lollar violated the Animal Welfare Act.
“I have reviewed the U-Tube footage and looked at the complaint about the bat that was mishandled by Ms. Amanda Lollar of the Bat World Sanctuary. This is indeed a violation of the AWA (Animal Welfare Act). Ms. Lollar should have sought veterinary assistance for the bat with the dystocia. It would be one thing if she were only assisting a birth, but the moment Ms. Lollar realized this was a dystocia requiring an episiotomy, she should have taken the bat to her attending vet or a local veterinarian. Apologizing in the video to the bat does not solve the problem. This mother bat clearly experienced pain and suffering at Ms. Lollar’s hand, so much so t hat it appeared to lose consciousness during the procedure No anesthesia was given to the bat and no pain management was offered. I believe the mother bat could have survived if it had been properly anesthetized and the pup delivered using proper surgical techniques. It is possible the pup could also have survived if this case had been properly managed by a veterinarian.” This was signed by Dr. Laurie Gage USDA veterinarian. Below is that email.
USDA then called up Amanda Lollar and told her, her permit was cancelled. They followed up with a certified letter but Amanda refused the letter. Below is a scan of the refused letter.
Bat World Sanctuary’s USDA inspector then sent this email to her supervisor.
“Can we send this regular mail? She’s a little far for me to hand deliver. Anyway, I can promise you she knows she’s cancelled. Not happy with us and very glad to be rid of us.” Below is that email.
After this was posted Amanda Lollar stated the emails and images were fake. They are not. Below is a screen capture of the result of a search for Bat World Sanctuary’s USDA permit. It was cancelled March 2012.

Randy Turner of Bailey & Galyen represented Amanda Lollar and Bat World Sanctuary in my case. Randy Turner tried to cover up his client’s animal cruelty. He told the USDA to state it was not an investigation but merely “fact finding.” I had to do three information act requests to get this document. As Bat World already lost their permit, the investigation was over. USDA should have given me this document as I requested it. If I had it before my trial, the outcome would have been different.
Randy Turner then told Amanda Lollar to ask the USDA and TPWD for a letter stating she was “cleared of all wrong doing.” They refused. I have their refusal emails. Amanda Lollar decided to lie and state she was cleared of all charges when she clearly was not.
Amanda Lollar and Bat World Sanctuary also have problems with their Texas Parks & Wildlife Department permit. Here is an article.
I reported Amanda Lollar and Bat World Sanctuary for animal cruelty, animal neglect, violations of the Animal Welfare Act, violations of TPWD regulations and violations of the Health code. I was in retaliation sued for defamation and breach of contract. They never proved defamation or breach of contract in the trial. My case is currently in appeal in the Second Court of Appeals in Texas. http://www.search.txcourts.gov/Case.aspx?cn=02-12-00285-CV Feel free to share this note.
