Bats on a plane

Fortunately for the passengers of Delta flight 5121, this one was flying solo. But, seriously, how many bats do you really need flying around the cabin at 30,000 feet to get everybody freaked out?

It happened 15 minutes after the plane took off from Madison, Wisconsin, on Friday. The control tower was notified soon afterward that the plane would be returning to have the creature removed.

One quick-thinking passenger near the rear of the plane was able to lock the bat in a restroom. It was discovered later by maintenance staff and flew into the terminal, but was later coaxed outside.

What I want to know is, how did this thing ever get past the vigilant eyes and probing fingers of the TSA?
