A rabid bat is usually indicated by increased aggression and daytime activity. If a bat is easily approachable, that is also an indicator of rabies. Bats should not be handled. The second reason is that if bat guano collects in the home, someone could contract Histoplasmosis. Inhaling the spores of this fungus can cause serious respiratory problems that could be fatal.
