UNION SPRINGS, Ala. (WSFA) - A Union Springs daycare has reopened after bats, discovered inside a few weeks ago, were successfully removed.

Turner’s Learning Center voluntarily closed after parents noticed a couple of bats flying around and one in the hallway.

The Alabama Department of Public strongly urged parents to have their children get a series of rabies shots even though there was no evidence the children were bitten.

State health leaders said the kids will get their final shots in the coming days.

A total of 55 children were enrolled at the time the bats were found.

Hundreds of bats were located in the attic before being professionally removed.
