The Batman : Why didn't Batman rescue the bat and rats that Riddler tortured?

Why didn't Batman rescue the bat and rats that Riddler tortured?

Riddler is collecting these animals to use for his torture devices and we can safely assume he isn't providing them with food and water, let alone veterinary care.

Batman spots a bat, frantic and unsettled from being confined to a small cage, probably nervous, agitated, and hungry, and Batman simply pulls out the letter, and closes the cage again.

Why would Batman re-close the cage? We can assume that Batman only temporarily closed it so he can read his letter, and has plans to free him later, but this needs to be made clear.

You'd think a guy who calls himself Batman and dresses like one would be more sympathetic. Again, maybe he was. Maybe their rescue was off-screen. But this needs to be MADE CLEAR. They should have had a scene showing their rescue.

It's a lost opportunity; it would have been a beautiful powerful scene had Batman taken the bat to his Batcave and set him free there.

I don't think it takes an animal rights activist to be instinctively responsive to animals being tortured, any more than it requires one being a human rights activist to rescue a baby stuck in a well. It just takes being a neutral human being.

If someone's walking down the street and sees a raccoon with a coffee can stuck on his head, or a bird's wing stuck underneath a large rock, any decent person's is going to come to their aid. No would would just walk away and ignore that.

Good point.

Because Batman is an asshole when it comes to caring about actual bats?

Who gives a shit about bats? They are just animals. Fuck animals. They should all be killed.

I agree as long as we start with the human animal.
