RABID BAT
Lexington health officials issue alert after bat found in home tests positive for rabies

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 13, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
LEXINGTON, Ky.


Health officials in Lexington are advising residents to be sure their pets' rabies vaccinations are up to date after a bat there tested positive for the disease.

The Lexington Fayette County Health Department says the bat was found in a home in the eastern part of the city. Officials say it doesn't appear there was contact between the bat and neighborhood animals but say residents should still keep an eye on pets. Early rabies symptoms include behavior change, chewing at bite site, fever and appetite loss.

Health officials warn against handling a bat to minimize the risk of contracting rabies.

Officials say anyone who finds a dead bat in the home and can't rule out possible human exposure should contact the Division of Environmental Health and Protection at 231-9791.
