EPPING, N.H., Aug. 18 (UPI) — Officials in a New Hampshire town said a meeting of selectmen was interrupted for about two minutes by a bat.

The Epping selectmen said the bat showed up about 46 minutes into the town hall meeting and remained in the room for about two minutes until it was successfully chased from the building, WMUR-TV, Manchester, reported Thursday.

“There was a bit of a frenzy. I called for a recess, but they chose to keep filming, and the bat was chased out the door, eventually,” Board Chairman Karen Falcone said.

Officials said the bat interrupted a discussion about placing a no-right-turn sign on Depot Road.
