A Thai woman could spend up to five years in prison after posting a video of herself eating a bat on YouTube.
The Youtube channel Gin Zap Bep Nua Nua uploaded a one minute and 40 second clip by Phonchanok Srisunaklua, in which pieces of a dead animal are seen floating around in soup.
It is unclear when the footage was filmed, but the video has been widely circulated online in recent days.
The woman can be heard laughing as she eats the bat, which is a delicacy in some parts of Asia.
Srisunaklua said the bats were delicious in the video and later can be seen taking them apart and dipping them into a sauce. The authorities didn't take too kindly to this, although it caught the attention of many viewers.
In Thailand, it is illegal to sell, buy or consume wildlife. If found guilty, Srisunaklua could face up to five years in prison and/or a fine of 100,000 baht (roughly $3,100).
If convicted, Srisunaklua faces five years in prison and a 500,000 baht fine (about $13,2000 USD) for charges of “possession of protected wildlife carcasses” as well as violating the Computer-Related Crimes Act of 2007. Srisunaklua denies all charges brought against her.
The video has since been deleted from YouTube, but it can still be found on other platforms. It's unclear how long the video was up before it was taken down.
Thai officials are warning the public not to eat bats after an incident in which several people became sick after consuming bat soup. Bats can transmit diseases and their feces can cause respiratory infections, so it is best to avoid them altogether.
After the video of Srisunaklua surfaced, many were disgusted because she was eating a bat--which was rumored to be the cause of COVID-19. some experts believe that bats carry over 10,000 viruses which could possibly lead to another pandemic if transmitted to humans. People left harsh comments on the video shaming her and saying things such as "you're going to die alone" or "this is all your fault."
The creator issued an apology after the video was removed, stating that she had “no ill intentions” and that she simply wasn’t thinking enough when she made it.
This incident just goes to show how important it is to be careful about what you consume, especially when it comes to wild animals. Bats may carry rabies and other diseases that can be passed on to humans, so it is best to avoid them altogether. If you must eat them, make sure they are cooked properly.
Srisunaklua, who is also a teacher besides being a bat-eater, said that she'd never do it again.
"I would like to apologise to those who were offended by the video. It was not my intention to cause any harm. I have learned my lesson and I will never do it again," she said.
It's not just the general public that's shaming her--she's also facing up to five years in jail for breaking Thailand's strict animal cruelty laws.
Srisunaklua's case is still ongoing.
