owl swim

- Precious words that changed my life -
Roadless destiny may separate us. However, there are bonds that remain tight forever. So even if you have to go, I won’t be afraid to say good bye no more.

Here’s the original [swimming bat video]:


I’m a little worried for the bat, you don’t see anyone taking the animal out of the water or making it to shore, or even the shore itself. It honestly appears to be drowning, which is why all the “aw lol this is so funny” responses make me a little uncomfortable. It reminds me a lot of that video of the owl swimming, both in subject matter and how people responded to it. 

I don’t know if the bat is struggling that much (at least in this clip). It’s head is pretty solidly above water without dipping under, and it’s movements are pretty regular and not panicked. 

It was also taken in India, according to the tags, and there’s definitely a different cultural mentality about animals - I remember from visiting that people mostly watched them or coexisted with them but didn’t really get involved, and that people thought I was a super soft and weird westerner for caring so much. So with that, I’m not really surprised that nobody is pulling it out.
