A bat found in Evansville has tested positive for rabies at the Indiana State Department of Health. A reminder has been sent out from the Vanderburgh County Health Department stating that rabies continues to exist in the wildlife population in the county. Indiana animals that may spread rabies to humans are bats, skunks, foxes, raccoons and coyotes. One of the first signs of rabies in an animal is a change in behavior. A usually calm animal may become aggressive or a very active animal may seem depressed. Rabid animals can lose their fear of humans, and nocturnal (active at night) animals might be seen during daylight hours. Any dead, injured or wild animal displaying a change in behavior should be reported immediately to the Evansville-Vanderburgh Animal Care & Control Shelter at 812-435-6015.
