Family gets rabies treatments after finding dead bat in Ann Arbor home

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — An Ann Arbor family is receiving two weeks of rabies treatments after a dead bat was found in their home.

AnnArbor.com reports Friday that tests this week showed the bat had rabies.

Washtenaw County environmental health coordinator Angela Parsons says its the third rabid bat brought to the health department this year.

The Ann Arbor family told officials they left their home Aug. 3 after seeing the bat flying around. The animal was dead when they returned four days later.

It's uncertain if anyone had been bitten.

A county resident was bitten by a bat in his home in April. People living in an Ann Arbor apartment complex were treated after a dead bat was found in July.

Two bats tested positive for rabies in Washtenaw last year.
