REDLANDS (AP) — Authorities in San Bernardino County say a bat found at a Redlands park has tested positive for rabies.

The bat was found under a tree at a Community Park last weekend.

Authorities are informing nearby residents, Redlands Baseball for Youth and the Redlands Unified School District and plan to post warning fliers at the park.

Authorities are warning people to avoid contact with wild animals, even if they appear friendly and to report dead, sick of nesting bats to animal control officers.

Anyone who believes they, family members or pets have had contact with a bat is urged to call the county Department of Public Health.
