San Diego (CNS) - San Diego County officials asked for the public's help Monday, Sept. 7 to identify the person, and possibly others, who may have been exposed to rabies this weekend while visiting the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in San Pasqual.
According to officials, a bat flew near an unknown woman around 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the park's Mombasa Cooker at Nairobi Village. A trained park employee later captured the bat and sent it to be tested for rabies. The County of Public Health Laboratory confirmed that the bat was rabid. The bat was not one of the Safari Park's animals.
