A rabid bat was discovered on Sunday at 9953 S. California Ave. in Beverly, according to the city's Department of Animal Care and Control.
Ald. Matt O'Shea (19th) sent an email Wednesday that two bats had been tested by the Illinois Department of Public Health laboratory and found to be rabid. O'Shea warned residents not to obviously not touch any bats or other wild animals.
If a bat is found, you should call 311.
According to DNAinfo Chicago, bats that are active and seen during the day should not be approached. Infection passes by bite or by entering the bloodstream through the eyes, nose, mouth or open wound.
