Bat Sabbath? Ozzy Osbourne reportedly installing bat boxes in UK home

Ozzy Osbourne is apparently going from bat biting to bat housing.

As reported by the British tabloid The Mirror, the Prince of Darkness is building bat boxes on the property of his U.K. home, which will help in protecting the winged creatures.

“Ozzy, 73, has promised planning chiefs he will put in the bat protection measures to aid conservation,” The Mirror writes.

Ozzy, of course, will always be remembered for when he bit the head off a bat during a 1982 concert. He’s continued to reference the infamous incident throughout the years, launching his own run of bat NFTs and selling a plush bat with a detachable head.

Meanwhile, the video for Ozzy’s new solo single “Patient Number 9” features a cartoon bat taking revenge by biting off the metal legend’s head.
