A colony of bats occupied a balcony of a flat in Kiev in search of an ideal location for hibernation, as shown by footage released by the Kiev Animal Rescue Group.
Unfortunately for the bats, their chosen location to hunker down through the snowy season already had a resident, who contacted the animal rescue group for help.
“It is too warm on the balcony for a comfortable sleep during the winter and the owner of the flat can also bother sometimes,” the group said in Facebook post.
The specialists found 120 bats from the balcony, and 119 of the nocturnal mammals were later released “in search of a better winter hibernation place,” with one being sent for further treatment.
