Bat fights for life
A bat was found fighting for its life in near University Hall on Saturday afternoon at around 2pm.

The Vesper bat (Lasiurus ega species)that fell from a tree looked unconcious after knocking the floor with its head and blood spilt.

"Ohh, baambi, it is bleeding and it seems it is feeling painful to breath, ohhh", says Ruth Namusoga a Computer Science student 3rd year.

According to the residents of the Hall, they say that the bats are a problem to them because they stink and they are a nuisance.

No reports reached the Veterinary Department of Makerere University for examination of the bat.
