The ultimate reality show may have gotten a bit too real last week.
A bat landed on a fan during the Ravens’ August 17 home game against the Lions, according to NBCWashington.com. But the bat wasn’t captured for testing. As a result, the bat may have been carrying rabies. (Or, possibly, the vampiric germ.)
The Maryland Department of Health urges anyone who possibly came in contact with the bat to contact their local health department.
It’s good advice. If there’s any doubt, folks need to be tested for rabies. You definitely don’t want that, given that once it gets to the point that the symptoms can be detected it’s always fatal.
Except for Bob Sacamano.
