Missouri – bat drinking from flower pot

May 16

A caller from Columbia, Missouri was concerned about a bat that had been struggling to fly in her yard. The little brown bat was so thirsty from his struggle that she observed him attempting to drink from a flower pot. 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.
