A homeowner found a young black flying fox (A.K.A. bat) trapped within her fruit tree netting during the early hours of the morning. Thankfully, she called Batusi Nights rescue team in Australia and they successfully freed the large bat. After briefly educating the homeowner on proper tree netting, the dangerous netting was removed.

Batsui Nights named the bat Luke and took him under their care for a little over three weeks. Luke made a full recovery with little abrasions and was released back into the wild.
