If you find an injured bat, or one that is on the ground or hanging alone by itself during the day, DO NOT TOUCH IT, and keep children and domestic pets away. A very small percentage of bats can carry a rabies-related virus which can only be transmitted to humans through a bite or deep scratch.
Any wild animal that is injured or frightened can be defensive, so it is essential that you immediately seek the help of a specialised wildlife service which has trained and vaccinated rescuers available.
