Anthony Davis hears 'Your team hates you' chant from Pacers fans

Anthony Davis hears 'Your team hates you' chant from Pacers fans Anthony Davis was the subject of some pretty strong trash talk from Indiana Pacers fans. It was initially believed Davis had played his last game for the New Orleans Pelicans. That, however, is not the case. He will continue to play in games, but Davis’ minutes will be reduced for the remainder of the season. Davis was in the starting lineup for Friday’s game against Indiana. During the evening, Pacers fans let Davis have it. At one point, a “Your team hates you” chant broke out at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

When Ravens fans filled the stadium for the season’s first home game , they didn’ t expect to encounter any wildlife. But in section 500, a bat swooped “ Bats can trasmit rabies to people.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana health officials say people who had contact with a bat last week during an Indiana Pacers game have possibly been exposed to rabies.

The Indiana State Department of Health says anyone who may have touched the bat with bare skin when it flew around at the Pacers game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday in Indianapolis is urged to contact the department or a health care provider about receiving rabies vaccinations.

“Finding this one rabid bat doesn’ t in anyway alarm us because we know we have a small number of bats that are rabid all the time in Washington state. Rabies can be life-threatening to humans but is treatable if caught quickly and before symptoms appear. The King County Health Department says

Rabies is transmitted through the saliva or brain/nervous system tissue of an infected animal. Wash any wounds from an exposure with soap and water; and seek medical attention. See your doctor for attention for any trauma due to an animal attack before considering the need for rabies vaccination.

The department says since the bat is no longer in Bankers Life Fieldhouse, its rabies status is unknown.

Health officials say a person is considered potentially exposed to rabies only if direct contact occurs between a bat and the person's bare skin. So far there have been no reports of anyone having direct contact with the bat.

When police came out to investigate, they found what is apparently a tunnel underneath the road. The tunnel begins in a nearby wooded area where police were able to pull out a generator, some boots and a bucket. The tunnel goes underneath the grass, the road and to the other side where there is a Chase bank.
