TORONTO — Michael Connor called it an “interesting way to start the day.”
The Toronto man shared photos on his Facebook page recently showing a brown bat in his toilet.
“A little before 6 a.m. this morning, just as I was sitting down, with only the light of morning coming in the window, I realized there was a swimmer in the toilet.”
“He (I’m guessing) was stressed, and needed to swim constantly. So I moved quickly to formulate a removal plan. I have no idea how it’s possible that he ended up swimming in my toilet.”
“As I lifted him out of the water and into the bucket he started to vocalize and click. It was quite heartbreaking.”
Connors aid the bat tried to escape the bucket but his wings were probably too wet to fly.
“He pretty quickly oriented himself head down and was spreading his wings and vocalizing when I left him,” Connor wrote.
When he checked back in a few hours later, the bat was gone.
