Don’t be tempted to make any physical contact with bats, even if they appear injured and you’re moved with compassion to help them, that’s the message from Hunter New England Health.

The lower Mid North Coast community have been warned not to handle bats or risk contracting the potentially deadly Australian Bat Lyssavirus (ABL).

Two bats have been detected in the area with the deadly virus and people who are scratched or bitten by an infected bat are at risk of contracting the virus.

If you come across an injured bat are feel moved to help, contact WIRES on 1300 094 737 and do not attempt to pick up the bat.

Also make sure your home is protected by having retractable screens in place.
