Residents Cautioned on Rabid Animals

The Ventura County Public Health Services is cautioning residents against handling bats or other animals behaving atypically.

Eight residents were recently given rabies shots after handling a rabid bat found on the ground, officials said.

Recent research shows that rabid bats can transmit the virus without biting a person, officials said.

It is also recommended that all domestic animals be vaccinated against rabies.
