  1. I’m a rehabber / researcher and I got a bat in last year figured I was going to get a polizer prizer for finding a new species a skunk bat. But after observing initially the bat got hit by pool shock and died it’s back later assumed the bat was electically shocked and it distroyed the pigment cells in the area. other rehabbers have had bats with similar situations. and the outlook isn’t good as with this bat that never could fly and finally died of unknown causes. here is a link to the medical record and pictures we keep on each of my bats. http://www.fewerr.org/PDF/Medical_Record_Bat_Skunk.pdf So if your going to shock you pool just be observant you don’t want to tie dye a bat.or worse drown one. I’m going out to work on the pool right now fix crack spray clean paint and fill. maybe I’ll put the batman logo like this guy did for his kids birthday. http://www.livbit.com/article/2012/08/24/why-is-the-batman-symbol-in-a-pool/ so I think everyone needs to do this for the bats.
