Bats removed from campus library
A contractor hired to remove bats from a college library in Florida believes they got into the building to escape the rainy bad weather.
The bats, 75 in all, were transferred from the library at the University of Central Florida to the college's arboretum, WESH-TV, Orlando, reported. The contractor was to return Thursday to remove bats that may have been hiding in an apartment in the building.
Chad Binette, a spokesman for the university, said the bats were in administrative offices in the library and not in the public areas. He said employees worked in other buildings on campus while the bat-removal was going on.
