TILLSONBURG, Ont. — Provincial police are reminding the public about the proper use of 911 after officers were called to remove a bat from a home in Tillsonburg, Ont.

OPP say a homeowner in the community called 911 to report a bird flying around in their home as they tried to go to sleep.

It happened early Tuesday, and responding officers managed to find and remove a bat from the home.
