Third bat tests positive for rabies

The third bat to test positive for rabies comes from the mountains near Lake Isabel:

It is important to remember that bats do exist in a variety of environments.  We need to remain vigilant of bat activity no matter where we are.

Please remember to report any contact with a bat or suspected contact with a bat!  If the bat flies into you or hits you or a family member at anytime that is considered significant contact and should be reported.

Remember bats can be found every where!! Stay clear of any unfamiliar animal including wildlife!

First Positive Rabid Animal in Pueblo County for 2013

The first animal to test positive for rabies is ........


The bat was found on San Carlos Rd. between Starlight and La Vista

This is a good time to remind your children that if they find wildlife laying on the ground or acting as if they have been tamed to leave the animal alone and tell an adult to take care of it!
