Health officials have issued a warning after a rabid bat was found in Lyme.

The bat was found in the area of Hamburg Road and tested positive for rabies on Friday, according to Ledge Light Health District.

Rabies can be spread by scratches from infected animals or when infected saliva comes in contact with open wounds, breaks in the skin, or if it gets in a person's mouth, nose, or eyes, Ledge Light Health District said.

The agency is warning people not to feed or approach any wild animals.
