GUEYDAN, La. (AP) - Officials have said that hundreds of bats have made their way into a Vermilion Parish high school.
Vermilion Parish Schools Superintendent Jerome Puyau said that Gueydan High School was closed Monday and will be closed Tuesday.
Puyau reported that they had 600 bats flying around the hallways. The animals may have found their way into the campus through a vent or some other opening.
School officials have been advised to let the animal leave naturally Monday night before closing any openings around the building.
The campus will be thoroughly cleaned before reopening.
