Canada's Groundhog Predicts Early Spring

Not so fast, Punxsutawney Phil! One of Canada's Groundhog Day  weathercasters emerged from his burrow Friday morning to predict an  early spring. And then, just to spice things up, he tried to make a  break for it and wound up biting a reporter. "Shubenacadie Sam" of Nova  Scotia's Shubenacadie Wildlife Park scampered around the park's snowy  grounds ahead of his 30th annual weather prediction, then attempted a  great escape. 

He was thwarted by CBC journalist Brett Ruskin, who  received a minor injury while stopping the critter's hasty exit. Video  shows Sam suddenly scaling a wire fence before Ruskin grabbed him and  put him on the ground. "Ow!" Ruskin said a moment later. "He bit me on  the hand!" Someone off camera joked that he'd need a rabies shot.
