Toronto police say an officer that was bitten by a raccoon Monday is back on duty as officials await test results determining whether the raccoon was affected by rabies.  

Police say the officer received a minor injury to his hand and was treated at hospital.  

Police say they received an animal distress call at around noon Monday about a raccoon in the Sherboune Street and Howard Street area.

The officer was reportedly helping a business owner deal with the raccoon when he was bitten by the animal. 

Police say it will be euthanized once the animal has been tested. 

It may be a week until officials get results back from that test.
