    So i found a bat i h yard and his wing is deformed and he's not moving much. I put him in a box and given him a milk lid of water and I'm off to get some mealworms. Anything else I should do? I'm panicking rn the box is lined with tissue paper

    Find a Wildlife hospital if you can as they will have the knowledge and facilities to deal with him.

    Thanks everyone, panic over! He's in a box with some mealworms and I've crushed the rads, after.about an hour of calls someone can come and pick her up, just hope she can hold out a little longer

    Someone came and the bat is fine , we'll see if (he it turns out) can fly tonight. But we reckon it's a broken foot so unlikely

    Pippistal soprano if I'm spelling that right? Very large and overweight apparently
