Rabid Bats On The Loose

From 46th Ward website:
The City's Department of Animal Care & Control has issued an alert: a bat was found on the 4500 block of N. Malden that was determined to be rabid by the Illinois State Public Health Laboratory.
All residents are encouraged to keep their pets on a leash when out of their homes. If your dog, cat or ferret does not have a current rabies vaccination, please see a licensed veterinarian to have the pet inoculated with the rabies vaccine.
You are advised not to handle any bats or wild animals. If any bats are found, call the City of Chicago at 311, and they will inform the Chicago Department of Animal Care and Control and the Cook County Department of Animal Control.
