Sunday’s Swiss Super League game between FC Thun and Zurich saw a pretty unusual pitch invader as a pesky pine marten ran amok. Players and officials gave chase although they couldn’t get near it until Zurich defender Loris Benito got touch tight with the furry fiend. 

Unlike ourselves, Benito failed to do background research on the pine marten – time was tight, him being on the pitch ‘n’ all – and failed to note their sharp teeth, ideal for eating small mammals, birds, insects, frogs, and carrion.  As a result he took a nasty nip, ouch.
