A Joliet family in the 600 block of 4th Avenue captured a bat in their basement on the 4th of August. It was then picked up by Joliet Township Animal Control on August 5th, and later tested positive for rabies. There were two adults and three children in the home, none of which are being recommended for treatment at this time. Remember that Will County Animal Control is available 24/7 for the reporting of bats. Will County residents are asked to call 815-724-1520, and advised not to touch the bats themselves.
