As director of Environmental Health and Safety, I take this opportunity to remind students, faculty and staff of the significant number of bats on the Texas A&M campus. Bats are considered high risk for rabies and should never be touched. In addition, a few species found in Texas are considered endangered or threatened and thus, should not be disturbed.
If you should come in contact with a bat, find one dead or alive in a campus building, or see a live bat anywhere that cannot fly, call the Facilities Services Communications Center immediately at (979) 845-4311.
Also, remember to close all windows and doors, especially in the evening, to help keep bats and other animals from entering buildings.
For more information about bats and rabies, please visit the Texas Department of State Health Services Infectious Disease Control Web site: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/idcu/disease/rabies/.
