BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) _ A bat that was found and handled by two high school students in an Omaha suburb turned out to be rabid.

The students found the bat on the inside of a window at Bellevue East High School on Thursday. They handled it before taking it to a teacher.

The Nebraska Humane Society was called, and officers took the animal. It was sent to Kansas for testing. On Tuesday the society was told the bat tested out positive for rabies, so the high school and the students' parents were notified.

The Nebraska Humane Society says it's unlikely the students contracted rabies, but the society says it suggested that the students seek immediate medical treatment.
