This time of year is when bats are most active.

Illinois and New Jersey have both recently discovered bats with rabies.  Bats are the leading cause of rabies in humans, although these cases are very rare.

Kansas State University Veterinarian Susan Nelson says there are some things you need to know for yourself and your pet.  Nelson says if you think you may have been bitten, immediately get in contact with your doctor but also remember that your pets may be in danger too.
