RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) – County health officials are looking for anyone who may have handled a rabid bat found near the Rancho Cordova Target last week.

Sacramento County Public Health said earlier they were looking for a woman who turned the bat in at the Olson Drive Target store on Sept. 19. Officials said it was crucial that they identify the woman as soon as possible as the bat had tested positive for rabies – meaning the woman would need to have possible anti-rabies treatment.
