A sleepover at a zoo didn’t go as planned.

Close to 200 people are being advised to get rabies shots after being exposed to a rabid bat at the Nebraska zoo. Campers participated in a sleepover at Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha, and one woke up to a bat flying around her. That led to the discovery of seven brown bats.

A bat later tested positive for the disease. About 186 people were given refunds, and the zoo is also paying for their shots. Officials say they did not know how the bats got into the venue, but it appears that they were not roosting there for very long.
