Hi Maria. We never know how they find their way into houses, but we know that around here big brown bats use attics and end louvers for summer colonies and basements for winter hibernation. From either point they have access to building interiors. This bat appears to be in good shape, so she will be released when the weather is appropriate.

Could you please tell us about how this bat came to be in a house and whether it was released again? Thanks
