GLEN ROCK, N.J. — An overly-friendly and potentially rabid raccoon was spotted in Glen Rock, officials confirmed.

As of Tuesday afternoon, it hadn't been caught, they said.

The Bergen County Department of Health Services reminded residents not to approach any animal acting aggressive, friendly, active or lazy -- or to feed, handle or approach wild or unknown animals, including cats and kittens.

Rabies is a fatal viral disease if untreated. Any mammal can carry rabies if infected. A rabid animal may act aggressive, friendly, active or lazy.

Bites or scratches from any suspected animal should be reported to local police.
