Don't Leave Your Window Open

I know this is old news, but for those who haven't heard.....

LOCAL RABIES CASE
Infected teen fighting for life
An Humble boy, unknowingly bitten by a bat, battles 'one of the world's most horrible diseases'


By LEIGH HOPPER and JENNIFER LEAHY
Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle

An Humble High School sophomore infected with rabies is fighting for his life as federal and county disease investigators try to determine whether any of his classmates or family members may need preventive treatment, school and public health officials said Wednesday.

Zach Jones, apparently bitten by a rabid bat as he slept four weeks ago, is being treated at Texas Children's Hospital with the same combination of drugs credited with saving the life of a 15-year-old Milwaukee girl in 2004, according to an Internet update posted by his family. That patient, Jeanna Giese, is the world's only known unvaccinated rabies survivor.

Harris County health officials said sometime last month the teen awoke from a nap when he felt something brush against him. He found a bat, which apparently had entered through a window, in his bedroom. The bat was captured with a towel and thrown out the window.

I only heard about it this morning. Seems fishy that he would be bitten in his sleep. We don't have vampire bats around here (that I know of). Fruit bats, yes!

Weird.

Are you sure it wasn't a raccoon that was hiding in the undertail of your bike?
