Hamilton Public Health reported last week the first positive rabid bat in the city this year.

Hamilton currently has an outbreak of rabies, mainly in raccoons and skunks, with 260 animals testing positive.

It is very important to stay away from bats and other animals that can carry rabies such as the raccoons and foxes and skunks.

It is also important to have your pets vaccinated for rabies to protect them and prevent the spread to humans.
