New Cook County map shows locations where bats have tested positive for rabies


COOK COUNTY, Ill. — Cook County officials have released a Halloween themed, interactive map to raise awareness about rabies prevention.

It shows the locations where 11 bats in Cook County tested positive this year.

Rabies can spread when pets are exposed to the virus. They can pass it on to other pets and humans through a bite or a scratch and if left untreated, the infection can be fatal.
