Three bats have tested positive for rabies in Ingham County, but the viral disease has not been transmitted to any people.
Rabies is almost always fatal without proper vaccinations.
A person can be bitten in their sleep by a bat and not know it.
If you find a bat in your home wear thick gloves and try to use an empty container to capture it and remove it from the house.
If a family member comes in contact with the bat call the health department to pick it up for testing.
