Bats who become victims of a tree felling must be regularly examined, as many injuries show later. For example splinters that are deep in the body move slowly to the surface and cause inflammation. These injuries must be treated, otherwise they could have fatal consequences for the bats. The animals need to recover totally before they can be released back to the wild.
Please note: The animals often seem to be healthy. Splinter injuries can be only clearly visible under a magnifying lamp, so we strongly advise you to examine every tree felling victim at a suitable location with very good lighting and magnifier lamp!
