Location: Peekskill, NY
Job Type: Bat Removal [Emergency Services]
The Peekskill Police Department had referred an individual to us for bats inside a house. When we arrived on scene a police officer was there to meet us. The homeowner had jammed a towel under the door to the room it was seen in to prevent it from escaping. A search was done inside the bedroom which resulted in us finding the bat hanging in the curtains. It was removed and prepared for testing by the Westchester Health Department for Rabies which after 2 days came back negative.
