FOX Atlanta—

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) – Order is being restored to the courthouse in St. George with the removal of dozens of bats from the building.

The Brazilian free-tailed bats were discovered when employees arrived for work Thursday at the 5th Judicial District Courthouse.

More than 50 bats were removed Thursday and Friday from the attic and other areas of the building, said Eric Palmer of Southwest Exterminators.

Zac Weiland, a Washington County deputy prosecutor, said he heard scratching noises when he walked into court Friday morning. Bats were in the ceiling, hallways, stairwells and even inside courtrooms.

  1. Awwww, he’s cute!

    Growing up, we had bats come into our old house about 2 times per year. I was always the one everyone called to catch and release them. Even my big brother huddled under his covers if one came into his room.

    I didn’t laugh at him because he could beat me up later. hehe (He wouldn’t, but I still didn’t laugh)
