Spring has sprung and for many, that means more outdoor activities. One man who was gardening over the weekend got a nasty surprise.

Fairfax County Police said Thursday that a man reported getting bit by a raccoon over the weekend.

The man was gardening in the 4800 block of Springbrook Drive in Annandale Saturday when a raccoon bit him on the arm.

The FCPD's animal control unit was called at about 3:34 p.m. The raccoon was captured, euthanized and will be tested for rabies.
