UPDATE: Connecticut Valley Veterinary Associates has now publicly identified itself as the facility that cared for the bat. The bat was reportedly injured and the person who brought it into the clinic was a homeowner who found the bat in his yard.
Officials are still looking for him.
Original Story: Health officials with Connecticut Department of Public Health say that they are looking for the person who brought a bat to a Marlborough vet clinic on June 23, 2017. The bat, they said, has tested positive for rabies–and that means that anyone who handled the animal should be evaluated for possible rabies exposure.
The Department press release did not provide any further details. We do not have a description of the person nor do we know which veterinary clinic the bat was brought to. (Even local media, which covered this story extensively, would not or could not give the name or address of the clinic.)
However, I can confirm that the clinic was the Connecticut Valley Veterinary Associates clinic.
