Bat Incidental Take
This page is intended for reporting the incidental take of endangered little brown bats due to potential human rabies exposure.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that in all "instances" of potential
human exposure involving bats, the bat in question should be safely collected if possible, and submitted for rabies diagnosis.
The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources has initiated a broad
incidental take permit
allowing the take/killing of four (4) little brown bats in response to a rabies exposure. To identify a little
brown bat click here.
As a part of this policy it is required that when a little brown bat is killed it is reported to the state via this website.
