Bats should be asleep right now, hibernating.
It sounds like you found a 'white nose' victim .

Re: I saved a bat yesterday.
I will be graduating from nursing school in a few months. Maybe that is what it means? I have always been interested in totems.


looks like the bat had a message for you that you are on the right track.

I didn't notice any discoloration on or around the nose, but I did wonder about that.

Re: I saved a bat yesterday.
I caught one in a five gallon bucket when I was a kid...I didn't want to touch it or take a chance on it getting caught in my hair (don't know why that was a fear) so I got out my bb gun and finished it...

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

Re: I saved a bat yesterday.
I live here in Minnesnowta. It took my husband and I two hours to dig our cars out of the snow yesterday. When we were finished we proceeded down the sidewalk to go inside and get warm. On the snowbank, I saw a bat on its stomach, shivering and breathing fast. I though for sure that it had broken its wing or was otherwise severely injured. I didn't want the poor thing to freeze to death out there(it was -13 with the wind chill). I got a broom and a dust pan and gently moved it onto the dust pan, covering it with the broom so it wouldn't fall and placed inside the porch. Now, the porch is warmer than the outside of course, so I figured it could die in a less frigid and uncomfortable place. I checked on the little guy (or gal) several times. Each time, the bat seemed more active and alert. After one hour or so, it started stretching its wings. It seemed to want to fly, so I opened the door and it flew away just as fine as can be. I guess it didn't have a broken wing as I'd suspected. Perhaps it was in a dark hollow tree and fell out? Maybe it flew into something and was stunned? Also, I thought bats hibernate in the winter. Isn't this so? If they do, what the heck was it doing out there, and in the daytime? Either way, I'm glad I was able to help it out. With so many bats dying off here from white nose disease, every healthy bat is important.

Yeah that is funny, with new year you could put them in a small cube, put some home made dynamite next to the bat and close is so tight that it does not explode the cube.

Re: I saved a bat yesterday.
Okay many years ago I was walking to work, I was still on my block, passing an old apartment building (2000 block of Garfield Ave So for my Minneapolis friends here); there was a bat on the newly shoveled sidewalk in front of the door.

The morning was very cold, it was around zero F or below. I saw the poor bat was still breathing, so I took my knit hat off and picked him up, put him in my hat and carried him inside the front of my coat to work.

Once there I put the hat down inside a paper bag, before I closed it I looked in and could see him baring his teeth and hissing up at me lol.

He scrabbled and scrambled inside the bag for a lot of the day, which was reassuring since he was lively and not dying. This really grossed out my coworker who was phobic of bats.

After work we drove him to the University of Minnesota Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic, the girl took him out of the bag with a gloved hand and we got to look closely at his face, which was like a cross between a monkey and a fox, with incredibly detailed features.

She fed him a mealworm which he ate enthusiastically. Oh, and when she took him out of the bag, her colleague there was jealous and said "you get all the bats!" lol. They had just been operating on the leg of a swan when we came in.

They said they would test him out to make sure he could fly in a special bat flying room they had, and then put him in a refrigerator with other bats until they could take them to a cave to release them.

Months later I got a note saying he had been successfully released to the special bat cave somewhere in the country.

Re: I saved a bat yesterday.
Every once in a while I see a couple of bats sleeping under the eaves of our house. They are very small and I think cute. Wish we had more but we are in a residential area and they don't hang out a lot.

PS Thanks for saving the Bat...good job.

 Quoting: mobocracy


They say that it wakes the bats up out of hibernation early, and they leave, searching for food...and they die, because of the cold, and no bugs out.
I'm concerned about the bats....
Even without the discoloration, your lil guy could have still been a victim of it, just hadn't progressed to the stage where it's visable yet.
I have a great love for bats...it's so sad that this is happening to them... :(
