A crew member on the ferry Issaquah was bitten by a bat about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, officials said.
Washington State Ferries spokesman Ian Sterling said a female crew member saw something on the car deck that looked like “trash or something.”
When she went to pick it up, the bat bit her, Sterling said.
The crew member stayed on board the ferry until it was docked, and then she departed to get medical attention.
Sterling said animal control was called to get the bat.
