MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — State health officials want to find a woman who dropped off two dead bats at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center.
The Minnesota Department of Health says the bats tested positive for rabies and the woman may not know she, or others, were potentially exposed to the disease.
Minnesota Public Radio News says the woman dropped off the bats Thursday and left before staff could get more information. Health officials are hoping the woman will contact them so rabies disease specialists can assess whether anyone needs rabies prevention shots.
