The pine marten darted onto the field during the Swiss Super League game between Thun and Zurich and initial attempts to catch it with training bibs failed, leading Zurich defender Loris Benito to grab the animal with his hands, Sky News reported Monday.
Benito was treated on the sidelines for a bite to his finger. The animal escaped once more during the game and was finally captured by Zurich goalie David Da and handed over to officials.
