What about bats and rabies? 

Less than one percent of the population contracts the disease, a lower rate of incidence than other mammals such as skunks. Still, you should not handle or disturb bats, especially those that are active and appear sick during daylight hours. All bat bites should be washed immediately with soap and water, and a physician should be consulted.
