Well, this Friday is the 13th and it is Halloweenmonth (otherwise known as October, I guess), so of course Lubbock Animal Services needs help finding the person who dropped off an actual bat at South Plains Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

Much to my dismay, the poor thing died. However, it's important that the good Samaritan who tried to help the bat be found so that the city can pinpoint a possible rabies outbreak. I know none of us want rabies for ourselves or our pets. Or even more, bats, as they're precious flying puppies who eat mosquitoes so we don't get itchy. Sweet bats!

Here's the press release from the city with all the pertinent details:

INFORMATION SOUGHT ON ABANDONED BAT

Lubbock Animal Services needs assistance locating the person who left a bat at the South Plains Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on Thursday, October 5. The bat tested positive for rabies, and it is important that Lubbock Animal Services determines where and when the bat was found.

The unknown person dropped off the bat around 7:30 a.m. and was driving a white, extended cab Chevrolet truck with a toolbox in the back. Anyone with information is asked to contact Lubbock Animal Services at (806) 775-2712.
