Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: An isolated shower or thunderstorm remains possible in the hot and humid air this Saturday, the 4th. Same for Sunday...although NOT a wash-out either day!
SAN ANTONIO (January 19, 2014) Officials are sealing up potential access points and testing a bat for rabies after bats were discovered in a dorm at the U.S. Air Force Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.
The bats have been seen in the dorm over the past week and a half, the U.S. Air Force Joint Base San Antonio said in a news release Sunday.
Two bats were captured and released into a remote area and one captured Friday night will be tested for rabies.
No evidence of nesting has been discovered, but the facility is being monitored for bat activity.
More than 200 trainees will be given rabies shots as a precaution, but none has reported being bitten by what are believed to be Mexican free-tailed bats, which are common to the region.
