Florida is very flat and the water table is very high. Not too many tunnels around.

Germany.

the bat was 43 and it was the pet of an 87 year old retired person. also the bat is quite fond of riding in buicks and for some reason is the mascot for "mildred's batty oranges" a roadside orange stand right near the atlantic ocean...

don't know if that background info is helpful towards this investigation...

Germany.

I latched onto the words "tailback" and "queued" as well. I didn't think too much about tunnels because there is a tunnel in Mobile, Alabama that runs under downtown. Mobile is about 50 miles from Florida, and even closer to the Gulf, so the geography of Florida merely makes it less likely that there are tunnels, not impossible.

As many of you guessed, this happened in GERMANY. I as worried about the no tunnel thing in Florida but I had just spent a lot of time making/editing the post so I posted it anyways :-b The poll was suppose to run until tonight but I think I set it to run for too long.

BERLIN (AP) - A bat set off a fire alarm in a German highway tunnel early Friday, forcing an hour-long closure and causing long delays, police said.

Police in Goettingen said the animal apparently landed on a smoke detector or a pipe in the Heidkopf tunnel - triggering a fire alarm, which automatically led to the tunnel being closed in both directions at about 4:45 a.m.

Police and fire officers searched the tunnel and surveillance camera footage for signs of a blaze, but to no avail.

After about an hour, the tunnel - and the A38 highway, a busy east-west route - was reopened.

A tailback of about 800 yards built up in one direction, while cars queued for more than a mile at the tunnel's other entrance.
