It was South Euclid police to the rescue Monday night, helping clear a bat stuck in a woman’s home.
The police department posted video of the not-so-caped crusade on Facebook. Armed with sheets, the officers helped guide the winged villain out the door.

What are you?!?....We're Batmen. 03/07/2016: Officers assisted a resident in flushing out a bat that had made its way into her living room.

A woman living in the 1500 block of Maywood Road called around 7:45 p.m. claiming she needed help and that officers have helped clear bats out of her home before.
“I don’t know for sure what it is, but I had a bat in my house another time,” she told a 911 dispatcher.
“If you open up the doors, coming in and out, a bat could fly in,” Police Chief Kevin Nietert said.
Nietert batted down the notion this call was all that uncommon.
“We, believe it or not, from a law enforcement perspective, respond to a lot of calls that most residents would not imagine,” he said.
Eventually, the real life “Batmen” were able to put an end to the batty situation.
In all seriousness, nobody was hurt.
