California man bitten by rabid bat while cleaning pool

A California man is receiving treatment after being bitten by a rabid bat while cleaning a pool in Riverside, Calif., roughly 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

Riverside County Animal Services spokesman John Welsh said the 55-year-old was bitten Wednesday, a day after a dog was bitten by a rabid bat in nearby Hemet, The Press-Enterprise reported.

Despite having received its rabies vaccination, the dog will now be quarantined for at least six months.

"While not extraordinary to find rabies in bats, we believe our cases, coupled with the recent cases in San Bernardino County, is a good time to remind the public to be cautious around bats," Riverside County chief veterinarian Allan Drysys said, according to KCBS-TV.
