Texas- bat inside grocery store

September 6

A Mexican Free-tail was found trapped inside of a grocery store in Mineral Wells, Texas. Upon receiving the call, Bat World staff headed into town armed with nets and ladders. It was reported that multiple bats were flying throughout the store, but upon inspection, only one was located. He was returned to the sanctuary and given a clean bill of health, and will be released later today. Staff at the grocery store are on the look out for additional bats.
