Officials searching for 4 people who scooped bat out of water

AUSTIN - Austin Public Health officials are trying to find four people possibly from Russia who scooped a bat out of the water near Waller Creek March 10.

According to Austin Public Health, four people rented kayaks from the Waller Creek Boathouse on March 10 and later reported to employees that they scooped a bat out of the water and put it in a kayak. Officials said "the bat could not be found so it cannot be tested for rabies."

If you know who the people who rented the kayaks are or you are one of the people who rented the kayaks, you are asked to call Austin Public Health at 512-972-5555.
