Posted: 07/05/2013 - Two bats have tested positive for rabies in Pueblo, public health officials announced Friday. One of the bats bit a resident, who is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital. Health officials urge the public to avoid trying to handle any bats, as it is impossible to tell if they are infected unless they are tested. If you see a bat acting aggressively, lying on the ground, or out during the day, those could be signs it is sick. If you see a bat with any of these symptoms, call Pueblo Animal Control 544-3005: extension “0.” If you find a bat that has had contact with a person or pet, do not let it go or throw it away. Call Pueblo Animal Control 544-3500: extension press “0” or Pueblo City-County Health Department at 583-4317 for assistance.
