young female big brown bat
Apartment complex in suburban area
This young bat has broken and missing canine teeth and fractured toes, injuries recently associated with being trapped in a plastic mousetrap. The Save Lucy Campaign(www.saveLucytheBat.org) and Wild Things Sanctuary (http://www.wildthingssanctuary.org) are investigating why big brown bats seem to be attracted to traps baited with peanut butter.
