SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Health officials are looking for a man they say a touched a bat at a San Antonio CVS Pharmacy that later tested positive for rabies.

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District said in a news release Tuesday that a man walked into the store around 9:20 p.m. March 28 carrying a bloody bat in a paper bag. Officials say that another man grabbed the bat with his bare hands and placed it into a cardboard box.

Animal Care Services eventually arrived and took the bat to a Metro Health lab, where it tested positive for rabies. Metro Health officials are urging the man who put the bat in a box to contact them so that he can begin preventative treatment for rabies immediately.
