The bat was rabid.The trio, who found the bat in the yard at the Animal Adoption League Residential Adolescent Program, are receiving a series of shots to prevent rabies.One youth was scratched and one was bitten. The third youth just handled the bat, said Chet Bell, the program's chief executive officer. Manatee County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Florida wildlife problems.
The Seminole bat was the eighth animal to test positive for rabies in Manatee County this year, said Paul Minshew of the Manatee County Health Department. Last year Manatee had 14. Problems with bats are rare in Manatee County, said Becky Wilson, director of animal control for Manatee County.

Since Animal Adoption League is on the edge of a swamp in the Tiger Bay State Forest, the staff is used to dealing with lots of animals -- but never a bat, Bell said. Seminole bats are common in Florida and the Southeast, according to a University of Florida Web site. They live in trees and Spanish moss and have a wingspan of about 15 inches. Manatee County animal services in Bradenton, Florida, declined to comment on the matter.
