Bat tests positive for rabies in Plainfield
JOLIET — Will county had its second confirmed case of wildlife rabies this year, after a live bat trapped near the front door of a Plainfield residence on Dan Island Drive, according to a press release.
Will County Animal Control sent the bat for analysis on July 8 and the Illinoist Department of Public Health confirmed it was rabies on July 9, the release said.
Two adults and two dogs live at the home, but there was no exposure. At least 10 bats in Illinois this year have tested positive for rabies in five counties. No human exposures have been identified, the release said.
Last year, Will County had reported a dozen rabid bats between May 22 and Oct. 23 — four from Joliet, three from Plainfield and two from Manhattan, the release said. Romeoville, Naperville and Elwood also had reports of rabid bats last year.
