Ozzy Osbourne Ordered to Protect Bats Before Making House Renovations
In a strange turn of events, Ozzy Osbourne was prevented from renovating the barn on his Buckinghamshire estate before presenting authorities with "considerable evidence" that bats living there are well protected.

AsĀ BBC reports, Black Sabbath singer, known for his bat-decapitation incident among other things, had plans of converting his barn into a two-bedroom home.

Since several species of small fury animals gathered together in Ozzy's barn are protected by Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010, the vocalist was left unable to continue renovations until further notice.

"Mr Osbourne cannot convert his listed building until satisfactory surveys and related mitigation, allowing the bats and owls to remain living on the site, is submitted," the council spokesperson stated. "We must be satisfied measures have been put in place to protect the animals before planning permission can be considered."
