THUN, Switzerland -- A pitch invasion by a sharp-toothed marten has created havoc at a football match in Switzerland.

The weasel-like creature dashed onto the field a few minutes into the topflight match between Thun and FC Zurich on Sunday and evaded efforts by players and match officials to catch it. Play briefly resumed when the animal ran into the stands, only to reappear shortly afterward.

Zurich defender Loris Benito dived and grabbed the marten -- receiving a bitten finger for his troubles as he tried to carry it off the pitch. 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.
