A few weeks ago, suddenly winter got frigid and I found a bat in front of my garage door.
I was going to work so I picked it up carefully - it hissed and showed its funny teeth - and put it on a newspaper on the garage floor. Later I called my wife to take a cardboard box to the garage and place the bat inside. But when she came there, the bat had disappeared. So she left the box on the floor.
Now, the most surprising thing happened. When I arrived in the evening, I found out the bat was lying quietly in the box. I took it home and asked my wife about it, but she claimed she hadn`t put it there. It seems that after warming up in the garage, the bat probably tried to fly away, and it landed right in the open box which was quite small. Incredible.
I called the municipal police, they put down my address and gave it to a special animal rescue patrol who came and took the bat.
I hope it survived the whole adventure in good condition.
PS. My kids were flabbergasted to see a live bat so close. I managed to impress them!
Nice lesson for your kids to see the bat up close and to see your compassion and kindness in helping it.
Good job, Bonobo!
