Rabid bat found near Denver Zoo bird exhibit
DENVER – Colorado health officials are warning visitors to the Denver Zoo that a rabid bat was found outside the bird exhibit on Sunday.
State veterinarian Elisabeth Lawaczeck urged parents on Wednesday to ask their children if they knew anyone who had contact with a bat.
A zoo employee is being treated for possible exposure after being bitten.
Zoo officials said all zoo animals are vaccinated, and the birds are not believed to be at risk of getting the disease.
