alone and call animal control officers if they see any that look ill or even especially friendly to people Our biggest thing is for everybody to just leave the bats Krueger said We need parents and grandparents to please teach their children to leave bats alone They need to call right away if they find a Krueger said The telephone number for New Braunfels Animal Control is 6082183 Animal con
