Students and staff at a southeast Texas high school went scrambling for cover after dozens of bats invaded the small-town school.
Sophomore Grayson Long says one almost hit him in the head, while junior Terron Hammond says one flew over his head and sent him scurrying for cover in a classroom.
Maintenance workers quickly installed extruder devices that would allow the bats to leave but not enter the school. Assistant Superintendent Gayle Woodall says as many 52 bats were rounded up and tested and none showed disease. Woodall tells KHOU-TV in Houston that school officials will reassess the situation Tuesday morning.
