Marten causes havoc during Swiss Super League football match

An unruly marten invaded the pitch during a Swiss Super League match between Thun and Zurich yesterday, expertly evading capture.

After running across the pitch once, the animal returned seconds after the referee whistled for play to continue. A small net was used to try and imprison it, but it broke free and again ran across the pitch before getting tackled by Zurich's Loris Benito.

Contains added Yakety Sax.

Desperate to break free, the furry critter bit Benito on the finger, but he held on and carried it off. After Benito received treatment for his bloody finger, the marten returned yet again, but this time the goalkeeper grabbed him and was impervious to the bites thanks to his gloves.

Finally, the marten was removed and the match was able to continue.
