Cortez News Clips:
Cortez — Some boys were kicking and throwing rocks at a Mexican free-tailed bat, when Stephanie, 6, stepped in to save it.
The bat sunk its fangs into Stephanie and later that day, Oct. 18, she went to Children’s Hospital where she got the first in a series of rabies shots as a precaution, her father Derek said.
A few days later the state confirmed that the bat was rabid.
Now several others also are getting shots and health authorities are taking precautions to prevent an outbreak of the disease that almost always is fatal.
Authorities also want to question a family down the block who found a bat in their garage and may have handled it. And an odd-acting stray cat that was found wandering in the neighborhood Sunday has been sent to Cortez for analysis, because it also may be infected, County Health Authority James Mobley said.
Stephanie’s sister Dorothy, 17, Zachary Jones, 20, an 18-year-old woman, a 59-year-old man and a boy, 12, all handled the bat and started rabies shots Saturday as a precaution, Mobley said.
Vaccination decisions are based on the situation and amount of exposure. Treatment, which prevents the disease’s onset, includes one dose of immune globulin and four doses of rabies vaccine over a 14-day period.
Rabies is spread when an infected animal’s saliva is passed to one who is uninfected, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The most common transmission is through a bite, though there are documented cases of airborne spread and contamination of mucous membranes such as eyes, nose or mouth, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Once symptoms start, the disease is almost 100 percent fatal, Mobley said.
Since 1990 there have been eight cases of rabies in 2009, according to the Florida Department of State Health Services. All died.
Colonies of Mexican free-tailed bats can number more than 1,000 in a space the size of an attic, said Jeff Norris, a bat specialist with Nuisance Wildlife Removal, a commercial and residential bat removal service.
One in five bats has rabies, Mobley said.
State authorities have recommended the hiring of a firm that specializes in bats, because handling them in the wrong way can cause more problems than it solves, Wright said. Bats, which are federally protected, should not be killed, they should be evicted.
