KERRVILLE — A rabid bat was found at EntertainMART Thursday, August 22nd, and Kerr County is warning residents to visit their local physician immediately if they came in contact with a bat at that location.

The recommendation comes as anyone who had contact with the bat could have had possible exposure to rabies and they need to visit their physician as a precautionary measure.

This is the 2nd confirmed case of rabies in Kerr County in 2019 and the 2nd case this week.

The bat tested positive through laboratory testing.

“We never know when we may encounter a wild animal, and so if you see a wild animal or stray dog or cat, never attempt to feed it or touch it,” KCAS advises.

The safe thing to do is call Kerr County Animal Services at 830-257-3100 or your local law enforcement agency.
