A bat from Rock County tested positive for rabies at the state hygiene lab, the Rock County Public Health Department said Monday.

Finding a rabid bat in the county is not uncommon but serves as a reminder that the disease, which affects the nervous systems of humans and other mammals and can lead to death, is present in local wildlife, according to a health department news release.
