Mill Creek family facing thousands in medical bills after bat tests positive for rabies
MILL CREEK, Wash. – A Mill Creek family is warning others after one of the bats in their rafters tested positive for rabies. It’s forced the entire family to undergo precautionary anti-virals costing thousands, something they said could have been prevented. Susan Kraushaar said she first found the bat last Tuesday. She said it was laying outside their garage door, dead. After hearing reports of rabies in Mill Creek, she put a bucket over the carcass and warned her family not to touch it.
