Sharp-Toothed Intruder Interrupts Soccer Match

THUN, Switzerland (March 10, 2013)--A sharp-toothed, weasel-like creature created havoc at a soccer match in Switzerland.

The marten dashed onto the field Sunday a few minutes into the top division match between Thun and FC Zurich proceeded to dart around the players and match officials who tried to catch it.

Play resumed briefly after the animal ran into the stands, but the marten reappeared on the field a short time later and interrupted the match again.

Zurich defender Loris Benito finally dived and grabbed the marten, which it his finger as he tried to carry it off the field.

His team's goalkeeper, Davide Da Costa, then managed to put an end to the creature's caper and bundle it off the field.

Zurich won the match 4-0.
