By STEPHANIE FERGUSON New* Editor
A bat found in New Braunfels last weekend has tested positive for rabies in a Texas Department of Health lab, according to local officials.
While this bat was found by children on Becker Street, another bat tested positive for rabies in April in the Canyon Lake area.
“We do have some problems here ”
said police department spokesman Martin Ma>er. who warns residents to never touch a bat whether it is alive or dead.
"Especially if they are falling out ol trees or acting rather weird. They need to just stay away from them and call the animal control people to come pick them up. They shouldn’t let any children play with them ”
Test icsults from the bat found on
Becker Street were sent to the city Wednesday, he said.
Rabies is an infectious viral disease of the central nervous system in mammals. The disease can be transmitted to man through the bite of an infected animal, such as a dog.
