    don't touch the bats

    I recently got an email through UT campus stating this:

    Recently a student on campus touched a dead bat that was later
    diagnosed as
    rabies positive. The student is currently undergoing post-exposure
    rabies
    prophylaxis (³rabies shots²) for preventative treatment.

    Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and the Office of the Vice
    President
    for Employee and Campus Services (ECS) want to remind you that Austin
    has a
    significant bat population, and though they're really cute--they should
    NEVER be touched.

    If you find a live or dead bat in a building or a live bat that can not
    fly
    outside, please call Environmental Health & Safety¹s Animal Make Safe
    program at 471-BATS (2287).

    For more information about bats on campus, please visit
