10th rabid bat found

A bat found by a resident in his home in Zion on July 22 tested positive for rabies, the 10th this year, according to the Lake County Health Department. Because the bat was found in the room where the resident was sleeping, the resident has been advised to receive treatment as a precaution. To date this year rabid bats have been found in Beach Park (May 7), Grayslake (May 12), Fox Lake (May 26), Waukegan (June 1), Lake Villa (June 24), Third Lake (June 27), Long Grove (July 5), Waukegan (July 14), Waukegan (July 16) and Zion (July 22). In 2009, nine bats tested positive for rabies. Anyone who has direct contact with a bat or notices a bat acting in an unusual manner, such as flying in daylight or lying on the ground or in your home, should call the health department at (847) 949-9925.
