Ohio- bat pup caught by a cat

May 23

A homeowner in Massillon, Ohio chased a feral cat away from an injured bat pup. Seeing the pup had sustained an injured wing, they gave us a call seeking advice. 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 once he is old enough.
