I Found an Injured Bat on the Trail Yesterday.
I was out test riding my ebike, which I’d just named Das Wampyr. It must have been a sign, because as I approached a depression in the dirt, I saw something flopping about and it was a fucking bat.
I expected a baby bird, since it was right under a tree. I thought it must have fallen out of the nest. I would have been more prepared to handle that. Birds don’t carry rabies, bats do.
