Wait. What? Bats with rabies have been found in downtown Sacramento?? The Sacramento County Department of Health Services announced the weird news yesterday, Sac Bee reports. The kicker? Multiple bats were found near the Golden1 Center! The county’s public health lab brought them in last Friday, where they tested positive for rabies.

The good news is officials believe all individuals exposed to the rabid bats have been identified and given medical recommendations. They are also reminding residents not to touch bats and to ensure that their pets are properly vaccinated for rabies. Ugh!
