A bat's echolocation does more than guide it to bugs; it also helps them dodge just about everything, even obstacles as thin as strands of hair.
So that rules out accidents, but bats also don't have any proclivity to attack humans. If it ever looks like a bat is swooping toward you with an eye on moshing inside your haircut, they're probably just trying to catch a mosquito that you don't see yet. The little bastards are trying to do us all a favor, so put the tennis racket down, Urkel. You're gonna hurt someone.
Bats are adorable and super fun and soft as plushies.
