Baby Bat Rescued in Queensland After 'Two Days Alone' in Hedge

A baby bat with its umbilical cord still “attached” was rescued after “two days alone” in a hedge in Queensland, Australia.

Footage of the bat being delivered to a sanctuary was posted online by Queensland-based Denise Wade, who has been caring for injured baby bats for more than a decade.

Attending to the injured bats at her home in Rochedale South, she regularly shares updates on the animals to her Batzilla the Bat YouTube and Facebook pages.

When posting the footage to YouTube, Wade provided an update on the condition of the young bat, who she named Eric.

“Following warmth, fluids, four hourly feeds and lots of love, Master Eric grew up to be a strong and healthy boy who was eventually released back to the wild,” she wrote. Credit: Batzilla the Bat via Storyful
