This image depicts a horde of unidentified bats, an animal know to be a possible carrier of the rabies virus. Most of the recent human rabies cases in the United States originated when the rabies virus was transmitted through a bat vector to another intermediate vector, including foxes, and raccoons, which then transmitted the virus to a human victim. However, it is rare for humans to contract rabies directly from infected bats.
