Another rabid bat found in Friendswood
For the second time since August, a rabid bat has been found in Friendswood.
The discovery of the bat was reported to Friendswood Animal Control last Thursday. It was found in the Forest of Friendswood subdivision.
The Texas Department of State Health Services took the bat the same day and has reported the bat tested positive for rabies.
A resident found the bat in the backyard of a home in the 500 block of Twin Pines, not far from where a rabid bat was found in the 800 block of Hackberry on August 27.
A dog belonging to the homeowner on Twin Pines is being quarantined at home for 45 days as a precaution.
