Bat bites UGA student

Tests under way to see if it had rabies

ATHENS, Ga. -- Athens-Clarke County Animal Control officers were awaiting test results Tuesday to learn if a bat that bit a University of Georgia student two days earlier had rabies, UGA police said.

The student saw the bat crawling on a sidewalk outside the Student Learning Center early Sunday evening, and the bat bit him when he picked it up, police said.

The bite didn't break the student's skin, but animal control officials consider the bite to be a potential rabies exposure and ordered testing, according to police.
