San Antonio's River Walk Doesn't Heart Bat Guano In the Food

I LOVE the River Walk. But I have to admit, strolling at dusk and having bat dung fall on my head  or picking it out of the plate as I sit riverside might take away some of the charm. (Unlike Austin's Congress Street Bridge bats, where it's fun to watch them all come out and head down river at dusk).

A colony of Mexican free-tailed bats that lives under a bridge spanning the San Antonio River will have to find a new home next year after the city seals off its roosting spot this winter.

City officials cite the river's water quality and the nuisance created by bat guano and urine on the city's treasured River Walk as their motives for evicting the bats.

"It's a very strong odor," said Lincoln St. George, downtown river operations superintendent for the Parks and Recreation Department. "My crews go over and deodorize every morning. They collect the guano and throw it in the flower beds."

Nobody has a good count of how many bats live under the Houston Street bridge, which is about 100 feet long. St. George said the bats nestle into piping under the bridge.
