More rabid bats in Garland County

A bat collected on James Street in Hot Springs late last week and a bat submitted early this week both tested positive for rabies, raising the county-wide rabies case count to 17.

Pet owners are reminded to vaccinate all dogs and cats at least four months old against rabies. To report any unusual daytime activity by nocturnal creatures such as skunks or bats, contact Animal Services at 262-2091.
