FRIENDSWOOD, TX – You don’t usually see bats out during the day, but when you do it’s never a good sign, because as most of you know bats are nocturnal and when they’re out flying around during the day, it can mean one thing — rabies.

A dead bat was found at Friendswood High School and taken to the Houston Department of Health and Human Services laboratory by the Friendswood Animal Control.  That bat ended up testing positive for rabies.

This is the second bat that tested positive for rabies found on the high school’s campus in two weeks.

No students or faculty were exposed to the rabies but the school’s maintenance department is inspecting the area where the bat was found and they’re going to close up any openings that could house future bats or other animals, at all district buildings.

Let’s hope they get a lock on these rabid bats huh? We don’t need anyone pulling a Tyra Banks.
