Waiting for someone to call it street art.
San Francisco police have found more than two-dozen bats chained to street poles across the city. Some of the bats have nails sticking out of them.
Denise Chew stepped out of an optometrist office on Mission Street near Rolph Street where a bat was found chained to a parking meter.

“This is really odd. I’m kind of speechless about it,” said Chew. “It’s pretty bizarre and it’s weird that there’s so many all over the city, but at least they’re not going around swinging at people.”
SFPD say 27 bats have been located, but no reports of injuries. That’s 11 more than Thursday, when the story first broke.
ABC7 News viewer Gerrie Burke alerted the station about the bat and snapped the picture.
“There were bolts in this thing. They had drill holes in it. They knew what they were doing. This was not put together in an hour,” he said.
