Rabid Bats Showing Up In Illinois

Posted by wlpo on August 24, 2012

Seen a bat in your home lately?  The Illinois Department of Public Health says calls about people being exposed to bats are on the rise.

So far, 52 bats in 24 Illinois counties including La Salle County have tested positive for rabies.  No rabid bats have been reported in Bureau or Putnam County this year.

Last year in Illinois, 51 bats tested positive for rabies, none in the Illinois Valley.
