PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Officials say rabid bats were discovered in Portland and Beaverton.

KGW reports the bat in Portland was found in a yard Saturday in the Grant Park neighborhood after a dog was playing with it.

The dog had its rabies vaccine, got a booster shot and will be in quarantine for 45 days.

The Washington County bat was found inside a Beaverton home on Sept. 10.

The bat was euthanized and there was no human exposure.
