Georgia- Eastern red bat grounded – photo available

September 6

An extremely emaciated Eastern red bat was found grounded in a homeowners backyard in Marietta, Georgia. Quickly getting her dogs away from the bat, the finder gave us a call for information on how to help. 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.
