Rabid Bat Alert

Rabid Bat Found in Stickney, IL

BURBANK – On August 14, 2017, a bat was found in the vicinity of the 4200 block of Scoville Ave. in Stickney, IL. The bat was submitted for rabies examination. It was determined by the Illinois State Public Health Laboratory that the bad was rabid.

The Stickney Public Health District would like to remind residents to stay safe when bats are near. Rabies is perhaps the most well known disease associated with bats, however several highly fatal diseases have been linked to them. An exposure to rabies most commonly occurs when a person is bitten by a rabid animal. It can also be transmitted when the saliva from a rabid animal comes in contact with a person’s mouth, eyes, nose, or a fresh wound. Even if you don’t think you were bitten, but find a bat in your home, this can be considered an exposure.

Take these precautions to help minimize the risk of exposure to bats and their diseases:

  • Carefully examine your home for holes that might allow bats entry into your living quarters.
  • Any opening larger than a quarter inch by half-inch should be closed.
  • Use window screens, chimney caps, and draft guards beneath doors and attics.
  • Bats do not chew holes so if the entrance to the home is not there, they are easily excluded.
  • Have your dogs and cats on a leash when out of their homes, and be sure they are vaccinated against rabies. If your animal does not have a current rabies vaccination, have the pet immediately inoculated with rabies vaccine.

    When a person is exposed to rabies, timely administration of a vaccine called post-exposure prophylaxis can prevent infection. If you are bitten by a bat immediately wash the bite site with plenty of soap and lots of running water for a minimum of 10 minutes and seek medical attention immediately. If you were exposed to, or bitten by a bat, contact your doctor.

    Always remember do not handle bats. If you find one living in your home, if you find one dead on your property, or in the instance of a bat bite notify: Stickney Township Animal Control (708) 424-9200 Ext. 2187.
