Texas – bat injured in fly trap

May 16, 2023

A bat was found grounded in Brownsville, Texas, so a concerned homeowner gave us a call. The caller explained the bat had been caught in a fly trap and appeared top be injured. Because it had fallen off and was unable to fly away, the man placed the little bat into a box with a shallow dish of water. 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.
