Florida – bat pup found inside home

May 18

A home owner discovered a bat inside of her home in Orange Park, Florida. She noticed the bat was hairless and smaller, so considering the possibility of it being a pup, she called us right away. She also could not rule out the possibility is that the little bat had not been caught by a cat. 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 will be assessed for hopeful release back to the wild.
