OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Humane Society says a bat captured in an Omaha home has tested positive for rabies.

A spokesman for the group said Wednesday that it’s Omaha’s first reported rabies case this year involving a bat.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1rhxAvm ) the bat was caught in a towel Friday. Humane society officers then sent the animal to a diagnostic lab in Kansas.

The family in the home has been instructed to contact a physician immediately in case of exposure.
