Rabies have become a threat in mid-Missouri and Kansas City. A second rabies-infected bat has turned up in central Missouri in less than a week. It’s the fourth since April. Gary Buford is in charge of Jefferson City’s Animal Control Department. He says rabies can spread through a bat population from time to time. The recent rabid bats have Boone County under a rabies warning. In Kansas City, four boys who were dive-bombed by a bat in Kansas City knocked it into a creek. They then fished it out with a stick and carried it home. One of the kids is getting rabies shots.
