Dumb…dumb…and more dumb.
The kids surrounded the bat and an unnamed adult PICKED IT UP (mistake #1).
The adult then urged kids to pet the bat (mistake #2) and JoJo asks if it was okay to touch it.
The adult said yes (#3)…why on earth would it be okay to TOUCH A BAT?!
Not a baseball bat…a BAT! Not Batman…BUT A BAT!
JoJo was immediately bitten and luckily, her mother is SMART. The bat was captured and tested positive for rabies so this little girl is going through tests to rid the disease from her system.
The adult has still not been identified. Spencer health officials are urging parents to get their children checked for rabies as well
