Rabies survivor may have to re-live experience with her dogs

FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Remember Jenna Giese?

She’s the Fond du Lac woman who became the first person in the world to be treated for rabies without being vaccinated. Now, two of Giese’s dogs might have rabies, after a bat swooped into their cage this week.

Giese tells the Fond du Lac Reporter that she saw a bat on Tuesday in an enclosure that holds two of her three Siberian Huskies. The bat was covered with bite marks from the dogs – and the State Hygiene Lab later confirmed that the bat had rabies.

All three dogs have been vaccinated for the disease. Giese immediately took them to a veterinarian for booster shots.

The law requires all three dogs to be quarantined at her home for 60 days.

Giese was a teenager when a bat bit her in 2004 in a Fond du Lac church. She made worldwide headlines after she was the first to be treated with an experimental combination of anti-viral medicines.
