Fledermaus — that's a bat to you — makes appearance in Lincoln East German class

{{featured_button_text}}
Eastern Red bat

It’s been a batty year, a lesson Lincoln East students learned Wednesday morning when one of the critters made an appearance in a classroom.

Students in a German class noticed the bat hanging near a hole in the ceiling for electronic cords, and administrators called Lincoln Animal Control.

It’s been that kind of year: Ten days into September, Animal Control had responded to 110 bat calls, after 417 calls the month before — four times the number in July. This may be the first one to decide to take up residence in a classroom.

The German students went to another classroom, the animal control officer caught the bat and the German students continued their language instruction — minus the fledermaus.
