    Girl Bitten By Bat After It Flies Through Car Window

    I've never heard of this happening before.

    http://www.wftv.com/news/4798187/detail.html

    SEMINOLE, Fla. -- Friends and family call her Batgirl.

    Teresa Shields says she was driving home Friday night when a bat flew through her car window and bit her.

    Her father -- who is also a doctor -- says Teresa had two red marks and some tenderness, but the bite had not broken the skin. He says the bat was foaming at the mouth when it attacked her.

    Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Gary Morse says some bats carry rabies, but the disease is no more common in bats than it is in any other mammal.

    Still, the Shields are having the bat tested for rabies just in case.

    Her family has given Teresa a present: a Batman T-shirt.

    Rabies? Pshaw.

    Call me back when it's a radioactive bat, and then we'll have ourselves something newsworthy.
