New York- bats found in chimney

May 15, 2023

A construction company was knocking down a chimney when they discovered bats roosting inside. Noticing that some of the bats appeared to be injured, they began calling different rescuers in an attempt to find help. After having little luck locally, they gave us a call. We provided guidance on how to safely contain the bats and located a bat trained rescuer in the finder’s area. The bats were transferred to a rescuer where they will be assessed for hopeful release back to the wild.
