BEND, OR -- A bat found in northwest Bend has tested positive for Rabies. Deschutes County Health Services is reminding families to avoid contact with all bats, and keep pets away from them  - whether they appear healthy or sick, dead or alive. Officials say it’s also a good reminder to make sure pet vaccinations are up to date. 

 
The rabid bat was found near NW Century Drive and Albany Avenue.
 
Rabies is transmitted through the bites of an infected animal. If you see a bat flopping around on the ground or otherwise acting unusual, keep everyone away from the animal and call the ODFW at 541-947-2950. 
 
Any people or pets who do come in contact with a bat needs to report it to local animal control or public health. Click HERE to learn more about rabies.
