That is freakin hilarious, and wow! that brings back memories. I was awakened in the middle of the night (bedroom in basement next to the rec room) to find a bat had flown down the chimney to the basement and was flying around the light fixture. Jammies-clad kid runs upstairs: "Dad! There's a bat in the basement!" "Mmmph. Grab the fishing net and a record album, catch it in the net, slip the album cover under to trap it, and let it loose outside. Zzzzzz". I almost had a heart attack at 13 when it slipped through the wide-weave net and went back to flying around the ceiling. Later I caught my breath, and caught IT in the fine-weave net and took it outside. To see the poor little thing laying there stunned on the edge of the ditch where I dumped it, with its little chest heaving ferociously and too afraid to move almost brought me to tears. It was gone a few minutes later when I went back to check on it. I assume it wasn't eaten by anything. To this day I can't help but smile when I chance to see a bat fly past in the night.
