From The Indianapolis Star: An Indiana University student bitten by a rabid bat while he slept in his residence hall room on the Bloomington campus is receiving rabies shots. The student, his roommate and a pest control worker who transported the bat also are receiving the 14-day regimen of shots. The student was bitten on a hand last week and shook the bat off in a hallway. The bat was later found alive in the hallway by a residence hall employee who called the pest control worker, who collected the bat and sent it to the Indiana State Department of Health for testing.
