Canyon police cautioning residents after increase in bat complaints

CANYON, TX (KFDA) - The Canyon Police Department is cautioning residents after a slight increase in bat complaints.

If you find a bat inside, call Animal Control or the Canyon Police Department immediately, but do not attempt to touch the animal.

If you believe you have been exposed to or bitten by a bat, you are advised to seek immediate medical treatment.
