thanks for asking. often as winter sets in, big brown bats are still active on the landscape. sometimes they get caught outside in unsuitable places or accidentally end up inside buildings. young of the year can run out of gas and become grounded. they come into our rehabilitation facility for a check up, hydration, and a meal or two before we release them or set them up for overwintering with us. this guy was just in a bad spot with a winter storm approaching. he's fine, so he'll be released soon.

Thank for sharing Lucy. Can I ask, what's the story here?
