STARKVILLE, Miss. (WLBT) - Before the game Saturday afternoon in Starkville, fans in Davis Wade Stadium were warned of bats that are considered a “high risk for rabies.”

"Announcement at Davis Wade Stadium that there are bats in the venue that are considered a ‘high risk for rabies,’” tweeted Alabama beat reporter Mike Rodak.

Rabies is mostly found in wild animals like dogs, bats and raccoons, and can spread to a person or animal if they are bitten or scratched by the rabid animal.

Thankfully, dying from rabies in the United States is extremely rare.
