This is a shocker. Delaware County banned bats Jan. 1st.
For 2010, the county is taking a serious look at banning

I am so disappointed that bats make headline news because a small percentage carry rabies. Many animals carry rabies and I know many humans who carry viruses as well. It is not in the nature of bats to attack humans. Any animal that is in fear is likely to bite and therefore should not be approached by someone who is not educated in handling wildlife. Bats are incredible creatures to observe and are a necessary part of the ecosystem to control insect population.

You are right on! Bats and other animals can carry rabies, which changes their behavior. That's why it's important to be aware of your surroundings (even if that means you still get bitten) and to have your pets vaccinated for rabies.
