KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in central Idaho are testing a bat for rabies after it bit a 6-year-old girl. The Idaho Mountain Express reports that the bite occurred Friday while the girl played in her grandmother’s yard. Blaine County Sheriff Gene Ramsey says the grandmother captured the bat and took the girl for treatment at an area hospital.

Ramsey says the girl received antibiotics but he’s not sure if rabies shots have been started. He tells the newspaper that medical officials usually wait until they test the animal that made the bite to see if it has rabies.
