Talking About Bats

One little dead brown bat (Myotis lucifugus)

Maybe one of my killers knew Wingnut had just learned about bats. Perhaps they know I am fascinated by them. Just maybe they wanted to continue the argument they had with one a couple of summers ago. But one of the rascals (here, here, or this one here) dropped off this prize in the new "dead zone" (since the garage doors have been fixed, they can't leave the bodies around my car so now they litter the front stoop and the back door yard).

I called Fish and Wildlife but no, they did not want the body. There is not a rabies concern here in Orleans county. I called the vet, and no, the cats don't need a rabies booster because they got their three year vaccine last year. So Wingnut and I photographed the evidence, studied the photographs, and disposed of the body, as directed, in a sealed bag.
