Rabid bats have been found every year in Los Angeles County! Bats are wonderful - eating many times their weight in bugs, but like any warm-blooded mammal they can contract and carry rabies. Recently rabid bats have been found in Encino and Tarzana. Please review important information from the Public Health Department regarding this very dangerous disease and what to do if you encounter a bat. Make sure your pets' rabies vaccines are up to date.
