Bats have small teeth and bites may not be easily seen, therefore individuals do not always know if they have been bitten by a bat. Any contact is considered an exposure. Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water and get medical advice from your doctor.
Notify the Animal Control Officer immediately by calling the 24-hour dispatch center at 609-921-2100. Whenever possible, the bat should be captured and sent to a lab for rabies testing.
