No seriously, Potsy's right. The logistics for this to have even happened are next to impossible. Unless of course he was holding it above his head or something, Lion King style

Does he actually have rabies, or is he just being treated prophylactically...? Because if he has rabies, that's uber unlucky

This is stupid, you can't contract rabies by urine, only a bite or occasionally by saliva, and less
than 1% of bats have rabies anyway...trust me, I'm a bat biologist ;) He will be getting vaccines as a
precaution, anyone who needs to handle bats needs to get them, its not big deal. However, he may need
treated for Leptospirosis which you also get from mice, rats, dogs, deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, cows,
sheep, raccoons, opossums, skunks, and certain marine mammals, not just bats.

I was checking if bat piss wasn't a medical term or something. A bat actually hit the bulls eye.

He'll be alright though I guess

I was actually thinking he was trying to imitate Ozzy's bat-biting act and it went horribly wrong.
