The Batman of Union Springs

Professional bat remover George Perkins of Union Springs sometimes wears a Batman costume, notes Associated Press reporter Elliott Minor; he also drives a Batmobile (a Prowler) and calls his office the Batcave. Check out the photo.

Perkins' struggle against his current archenemies, the bats infesting the historic district of Americus, Ga., also was covered by National Public Radio -- on Halloween, naturally.
