Florida- bat found in empty firepit

January 30

A little bat in Castleberry, Florida found itself in a desperate situation when he ended up in an empty firepit, unable to fly out. Thankfully, the home owners discovered the bat in the pit, and quickly got him out using gloves. We provided guidance on how to safely contain the bat and located a bat-trained rescuer in the finder’s area. The bat was transferred to a rescuer where he/she will be assessed for hopeful release back to the wild.
