Irini was tangled in fruit tree netting and cut out by the home owner, and left in a tree to fly off.
A neighbour called wildlife rescue so I could retrieve this bat before she died in the tree.
She had a fracture in her leg adjacent to the knee joint. This is not something we can fix and they need 2 really functional legs to survive in the wild.
She was euthanased - which is better than her dying in the tree over a few days.
