"had a cigarette placed in its mouth, indicating it had been handled,"

"health department officials are assuming the bat was positive for rabies. "

Whole lot of assuming going on. What if the bat's bad habit finally caught up with him?

Rabies isn't the handicap it used to be.

To be fair, the bat picked it up from making out with subby's mom.

She was incredibly lucky,rabies is still a majority of the time a death sentence without a timely vaccine,ie within a day or so of the bite.

Previous studies have suggested that typically about 10 per cent of bats taken by the public to be tested have the disease

Don't touch bats.

Isn't saying every bat has rabies the same as saying every black person is a thief and loves watermelon and fried chicken?

Given that rabies is incurable and 100% fatal, best to assume the animal had it unless you can prove it didn't.  Especially if the animal was found in a "downed" condition, or was seen behaving in an unusual manner (e.g. a nocturnal animal that's out in the daytime).

Yes. Which is why it was safe to assume the bat had rabies.

Subby's keyboard hay have had rabies and was clearly handled by subby when submitting this headline. Whoever subby is, he may have contracted rabies.

I haven't thought about this in a while.  But 45+ years ago I remember this story which scared the kids in my neighborhood in Cherry Hill, NJ, about the dangers of feeding/playing with wildlife. This young boy on my block, Timmy, was stupidly trying to feed and play with a squirrel when the squirrel bit his finger.  He not only cried out in pain but had to get rabies shots and I remember as a kid always being careful around squirrels after that incident. Now, I work near Madison Square Park in Manhattan and the squirrels are really friendly with people and come close to them trying to pick up food. They even seem friendly with all the dogs in the Park.  I took pictures of a squirrel meticulously eating french fries left on a park bench.  I forgot about poor Timmy and his bitten finger until I read this story.

Oh, and just in case anyone thinks this is foolish scaremongering, consider that HIV is considered a Biohazard Level 3 virus; while rabies and Ebola are both Biohazard 4. Fatal, incurable, and easily transmitted.

Squirrels can also carry bubonic plague, but they are adorable and it's hysterical to watch them peel and eat grapes so I like to forget that fact when I see them in the park.

She was in "Mystery Diagnosis" IIRC. They went through almost every kind of medical test you can think of. She recalled what happened and remembered saying something like, "Well, there was that one time that I was bitten by a bat." and the doctors' faces all turned white.

This is why we can't have nice things, because of idiots. Bats provide a crucial role to the ecosystem and yes even our economy. Don't touch them, leave them be, stop being an idiot and getting everyone scared of bats and thinking them as vermin. They'll eat insects and we'll be better for not paying for expensive/hazardous chemicals to do what they do for free.

If you eat squirrels and you eat their brains you can get Creutzfeldt Jakob disease. Don't eat squirrels,don't touch squirrels just watch them.

Just in case people's script blockers are cutting off the right side of the text (like it did for me) here's the article...

Jefferson County public health officials issued a warning to whoever may have handled a dead bat, putting a cigarette in its mouth, about a possible rabies scare.

The bat was found on a park picnic bench in Harriman Park near the corner of West Quincy Avenue and South Kipling Street, according to a news release from the Jeffco health department.

"The bat had been placed on a woman's floral shirt and had a cigarette placed in its mouth, indicating it had been handled," according to the release.

The bat was submitted for testing, but due to the poor condition of the animal, tests could not be run, the release states.

For safety concerns, health department officials are assuming the bat was positive for rabies.

Anyone who handled the bat may have been exposed and should seek medical treatment immediately, according to the release.

For more information, contact Jefferson County Animal Control: 303-271-5070.


Ha ha sneaky newspaper website. No scripts for you!

At the end of July, my family and I were camping with a large group and the younger portion of the group(mostly kids) had a big campfire and songs time.  I attended a couple and noticed bats flying above us and I was grateful because the mosquitoes were out.  A few times a bat would get low and buzz someone, nearly slapped one teen in the face with its wing.  I about lost it laughing.  So, I am getting a kick.

/bats are fun to watch fly because they don't use the same rules of flight that birds adhere to.  They will turn hard on a dime or go straight back the way they came if it means getting their dinner

Squirrels are not known for transmitting rabies.
