EAGLE POINT, Ore. (AP) -- Public health officials say a rabid bat was found in the southwestern Oregon town of Eagle Point after a resident brought it in for testing.

Jackson Baures of Jackson County Public Health says the bat flew into an unidentified resident on July 13 and then fell to the ground and flopped around.

The bat tested positive for rabies at Oregon State University.

The resident was advised to take rabies prophylaxis treatments as a precaution.

Baures says about eight to 10 percent of bats test positive for rabies every year.

The Oregon Health Authority says so far this year, seven bats have tested positive for rabies.
