Texas – freetail bat injured due to winter freeze – photo available

January 25

We rescued the bat who sustained a hole in her wing after falling from the Waugh Drive Bridge during the Houston, TX, cold snap. We provided guidance on how to safely contain the bat and located several Bat World Sanctuary trained rescuers in the finder’s area. The bat was transferred to Bat World MidCities where she will be assessed for hopeful release back to the wild.
