Bats With Rabies Discovered in Northern Colorado
Most people are not fans of bats, and now there's another reason to avoid bats in Northern Colorado. According to the Coloradoan, three bats, all of them in Loveland, have tested positive for rabies over the past few weeks. Apparently, this is the time of year that cases such as these start to pop up according to the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment.
The most common animals that contract rabies in the area are skunks and bats. The most common indication of an animal that may have rabies, is strange behavior, such as these notorious nocturnal animals out during the middle of the day. In 2015, Larimer county had positive tests come back on 14 animals, all of them bats, and in the Fort Collins area.
