DENVER, Colo. - A bat with rabies was found at the Denver Zoo, and one visitor says he had a bat stuck to his wheelchair.
Denver Zoo officials said this was not part of the animal exhibits, but was a bat native to Colorado.
Alex Akins and his family spent last Saturday at the Denver Zoo and had a close encounter with the bat.
The bat is one of 35 in Colorado with confirmed cases of rabies. So far 24 humans have been exposed.
