Iowa – bat hanging in corner of porch – photo available
May 17, 2023
A concerned home owner in Waterloo, Iowa gave us a call after noticing a big brown bat that had been roosting in the corner of his porch had not left in several days. The man gave us a call and explained his worries that the bat might have its foot caught on something, preventing it from leaving at night. He sent us a photo and the bat did appear to be very thin and dehydrated. 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.
