A Bent Tree resident posted, on the community NextDoor website, that a bat was found dead by their back door last week. The Pickens Health Department had the bat tested for rabies and the test came back positive. Click here for a previous post about a raccoon incident that occurred at the same house last year. Earlier this year, a women was attacked by a rabid raccoon in Bent Tree (click here for another previous post). Pets should always be current on their vaccinations.
