2. This year, a marten ran on the field of a Swiss soccer game and bit the player who captured it.

A wild mammal bite to the hand isn't the worst thing that can happen in a game played with your feet. This guy played the next game.

3. In 2011, a Brazilian soccer dog evaded capture for three minutes.

Players chasing feral dogs around the field is almost as entertaining as a minor league soccer match.

9. In 1998, a seagull grabbed a ball off the green during The Players Championship.

This resulted in a one-stroke penalty for the player, which seems entirely too harsh.

10. In 2007, this furry guy nearly met his demise on a Formula One racetrack.

He must be angry. We'd be very upset, too, if someone built a race track on top of our house.

13. Instead of rushing the court, this cat is training for next year's Wimbledon at home.


She has a team of lawyers poring over the international tennis rule book. So far, they've found nothing that says cats are prohibited.

16. Another squirrel tried to steal third base during a 2008 baseball game between the Indians and White Sox.

17. In a 2006 Pacific League game in Mexico, a promotion went awry and a piglet got loose.

The team mascots were responsible for getting the piglet off the field... because, of course.

Whether it's an animal going nuts on the field or something in your everyday life, whenever you hear "Da-Da-Da, Da-Da-Da," you know something amazing just happened.
