An 11 year old girl was bit by a bat in Hot Springs that tested positive for rabies.
Apparently, the little girl and her mom were visiting a dam in the area when the girl found the bat just lying on a rock. The bat bit her after she picked it up to throw it in the water. Terrifying! Ahh!
Hot Springs animal services department has been notified by state health officials that the bat is rabid.
The bat actually swam back to the shore. The girls mother grabbed the bat and took it to animal services to be tested.
There are no more details at this time.
