New bat

I just rescued a female freetail. She was in some firewood and got tossed around, and in her tumbling something tore a strip of skin and fur from her right leg, from her thigh to her ankle. It's very raw and painful. She can still use the leg but she doesn't want to and I don't blame her. I can't release her until it warms up in early august so it looks like I have a long-term resident.

The vet gave me some ointment to rub on. I hope it helps.

I think I'll name her "Kay." She weighs 9 grams.
