The Utah County Health Department is warning Utahns to avoid grounded bats during their upcoming migration. Utah is home to 18 species of bats, many of which migrate through the state in the fall and spring. The upcoming migration to the Southern Hemisphere is expected to last until the end of October.
Bats are safe to observe from a distance but those found on the ground may carry illnesses, said Lance Madigan of the health department.
Most bats will avoid people if they’re feeling well, however sick bats tend to come to the ground.
