Even in cities like Abidjan in Ivory Coast, Straw-colored fruit bats (Eidolon helvum) are intensely hunted by teenage boys who earn a good income selling them for people to eat. Though over hunting poses a threat to these bats' survival, there is no evidence that the people who eat them contract diseases as a result.
