[ARCHIVED] Positive bat confirmed

Hot Springs Animal Services recently received confirmation of a positive rabies test on a bat submitted to the state health laboratory. The bat was collected last week at the Arlington Park Court, off of Malvern Avenue. There were no animal or human exposures.

The case brings the 2015 Garland County confirmed rabid animal count to three, including two skunks and one bat. Currently, Pulaski and Lonoke counties lead the State of Arkansas in total number of confirmed rabies cases this year to date.

Pet owners are reminded to vaccinate all dogs and cats at least four months old against rabies. To report any unusual daytime activity by nocturnal creatures such as skunks or bats, contact Animal Services at 262-2091.
