AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) Many of us have worried about our kids or our pets interrupting our online meetings.
Well, how about a bat?
There was quite a surprise at the start of a legislative meeting at the State House in Augusta Wednesday morning.
Just seconds into the Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety meeting there was an uninvited guest.
A bat gave some of them quite a startle.
This could be seen on the Maine Legislature's YouTube channel.
Some people left the room, others attempted to fix the problem.
One opening a window and another seen carrying a bin to catch it.
Others simply sat and continued working.
"Ok, let's try this again. We were rudely interrupted by a big bat. So, it's now gone and we can proceed."
The bat was eventually captured allowing for the meeting to continue.
