This is Betty. Last night she was caught in the Barbed Wire fence on my property :-(. After cutting the fence she was given a slight anesthetic to relieve her pain and put her in a doze. Then Jo and I removed the wire from her wing webbing and fourth finger.
Unfortunately her finger died but with some slight bruising now her wing should heal well.
Betty is doing very well and having a sleep with other recovering bats in care. She will be spoilt rotten till she is well enough to be released back into the wild.
Don’t believe people when they say bats are full of disease. It’s bullshit! Birds carry more disease than bats. Protect these beautiful creatures.
Betty is a sweet, cuddly little girl with not a mean bone in her body. Give bats a chance!
