Canada's groundhog bites reporter after predicting early spring
Friday, 02 February 2018

On Friday, moments after predicting an early spring for 2018, Shubenacadie Sam, one of two infamous forecasting groundhogs in Canada, got into a bit of a bloody altercation with a certain CBC News journalist.

After completing his official duties, Sam, a proclaimed no-shadow enthusiast, took a moment to relax and show off his more playful side to reporters willing to enter his enclosure. Unfortunately for reporter Brett Ruskin, things to a turn for the worse when he tried to prevent Sam from escaping.

Ruskin later took to Twitter to make a few jokes about the incident.

"Sam's handlers from the Dept. of Natural Resources say I shouldn't need a shot," the CBC News reporter said. "But also my front teeth are growing and there's fur all over me now."

Aside from getting a little blood on his hand, Ruskin added that he's "fine."
