Watch the video below on how to capture a bat safely. 

Once the bat is captured and placed in a secure container, you can bring the live bat to the University of Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory during regular business hours. We will humanely euthanize the bat and prepare the samples for rabies testing. For more information on rabies testing at the VDL see our rabies page
