Bats With Rabies Found In Mid-Michigan [VIDEO]

When you see images of bats, you might think of Halloween and scary fun. But real bats can carry rabies and one bite could be deadly. Especially for your pets.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture tracks rabid bats in the state. Many have been found so far this year. Genesee, Livingston and Oakland Counties have each reported rabid bats. While rabies is a threat to people, it’s seen more often in dogs and cats.

While state law requires dogs and ferrets to be vaccinated against rabies, there is no such requirement for cats. But vets strongly recommend it.People think if their cat spends all its time indoors it doesn’t need to be protected. That is not the case.

Bats can work their way into attics and chimneys — sometimes surprising people when they show up in living rooms and bedrooms. For information on how to handle a bat problem in your home click here.
