Kansas- bat found grounded in yard

January 31

A small bat was found grounded in a homeowners yard in Winfield, Kansas. We provided guidance on how to safely contain the bat and located a bat trained rescuer in the finder’s area. As the rescuer was over 100 miles away, we enlisted the help of multiple transport volunteers to get the bat to safety. The bat will be kept over winter and will be assessed for hopeful release back to the wild in the spring.
