Palm Beach County Health Department officials captured a raccoon on Tuesday that later tested positive for rabies, according to officials.

On Monday, officials were alerted about a raccoon acting strangely at Carlin Park in Jupiter. The person who saw the raccoon on Monday returned on Tuesday and captured the animal, officials said.

They then took it to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, who turned it over to Animal Care and Control for testing, according to a press release.

Rabies is a disease that affects the nervous system and is fatal to warm blooded animals and humans, officials said.
