ENTANGLED

GREY-HEADED FLYING FOX, PTEROPUS POLIOCEPHALUS

I’m a wildlife carer and had just completed my bat course, this was my first rescue. During summer bats and birds are frequently caught in fruit tree netting. Not all are rescued immediately or escape fatal injury. This male grey-headed flying fox was lucky. Please use wildlife friendly netting.
