Residents in a North Side neighborhood are being warned after a rabid bat was found in the area.

City officials alerted residents that the bat was located last week in the 1500-block of W. Devon in the city's Edgewater neighborhood.

No humans came in contact with it.

Officials are urging residents to make sure their pets get rabies shots.

They say many rabies cases in northeast Illinois involve bats.
