When the Beaumont City Council approved changes to animal care ordinances Jan. 31, they also approved an increase in the length of time between pets' rabies vaccinations, meaning instead of being good for just one year, the vaccinations would be valid for three years.

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, a man employed with TruTech Animal Removal out of Houston, was removing bats out of a house  at 2486 Pierce St. in Beaumont earlier this week. It is unclear whether the man was bitten or just exposed to the bat, but it was shipped by the individual to Austin to be tested for rabies. The test came back positive.
