A bat found in Lexington has tested positive for rabies, according to the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department.


The bat was discovered in the Meadowthorpe area, according to authorities (40511 zip code). The health department warns against being alarmed by symptoms, despite the fact that they do not believe the bat has communicated with any of the nearby animals.


Changes in behavior, chewing at the bite site, fever, and a lack of appetite are some of the early symptoms.


Officials from the health department advise Lexington residents to ensure that all pets have received their rabies vaccinations. All dogs, cats, and ferrets must be immunized against rabies according to state law.


If you discover a bat in your home, LFCHD recommends never handling it. If you cannot rule out any possibility of exposure, they request that you call 859-231-9791.
