“No Filter Show” Episode 126

Caution: Bats can carry rabies. Do not touch or handle them. Rabies is preventable if post-exposure medical treatment is given in short order following exposure but it is almost always fatal if the post-exposure prophylaxis is not given before rabies symptoms develop.

If you encounter a bat in distress, contact your local animal control office or, in Utah, the Division of Wildlife Resources. If you are exposed to a rabies risk, wash the exposed area immediately with soap and water, then contact your medical professional for assessment and treatment directives.
