First Rabies Positve Bat for 2014

Bat had contact with a senior on Quincy St. near Orman Avenue. Bat was sent for testing and was positive for Rabies.

Bats often roost in older homes or any place they can find cover. People should assess their homes and outer openings to ensure they are adequately protected and sealed.

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

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!
