November 03, 1995|ANDREW BLECHMAN

The Ventura County Public Health Services is cautioning residents against handling bats or other animals behaving atypically.

Eight residents were recently given rabies shots after handling a rabid bat found on the ground, officials said.

Recent research shows that rabid bats can transmit the virus without biting a person, officials said.

It is also recommended that all domestic animals be vaccinated against rabies.
