In this one we have an example in which we have the same causes but we don't have the effect. So it weaken the argument that said that the only causes are being active during night and shy, and the effect is being persecuted.

Definately a cause and effect argument.

Bats are SHY + NIGHT creatures, so Bats are FEARED and PROSECUTED.

Is there no other reason why bats may be FEARED or PROSECUTED?

Answer D-Other animals are SHY + NIGHT creatures, yet they are not feared. Bats must have some other trait that creates fear among people.

The reasoning in the question stem is A(they are shy animals that are active only at night) -> B(bats are feared and persecute). To weaken this causality, one way is to show that even when A happens, B doesn't happen. That is exactly how D does.

90% of cr weaken questions, revolve around alternate reasoning. Other 10% depend on login in the argument or cause and effect imbalance.The thing to
remember is while using there is cause, but no effect or there is no cause but presence of effect logic in weaken questions,it is slightly acceptable
as to bring a new target group if it weakens.
Straight forward answer:

There is cause(with other creatures) --> But there is no effect (people are not feared)

this question shows the true color of an argument. There must be a relationship, particularly causal relationship between a premise and a conclusion.

(D) most seriously weakens the group's contention. They argue that just because bats are shy and active at night, people are scared of them. (D) provides a counter example in the form of Raccoons and Owls.

It has to be D
The reason is that the group contends that bats are feared because they are active in night and are they are shy.
But D provides us an example of animals showing same type of behavior same as bats but they are not feared , hence the reason must be something else .
