BAM. Sam did not hold back; he came for blood. He dug his little groundhog teeth into Brett’s hand right before falling off the fence and scurrying across the snow, his master plan completely foiled.
In the video, you can hear Brett laughing, saying “he bit me!” as those around him applaud Brett for saving Sam.
The bite drew blood and Brett took photos to show his followers the damage that was done. Some were loving the drama and the excitement that was coming from this normally uneventful holiday.
Others were worried that Brett should get some sort of rabies shot to combat the vicious bite of Sam, especially since it drew some serious blood.
At first, Brett did not feel the need to take medical action and claimed he was fine, laughing off his injury. Apparently, he wasn’t the first victim of Sam’s vengeful ways and probably won’t be the last.
There were quite a few animal activists on Twitter defending Sam, claiming this behavior shouldn’t be surprising considering he’s a wild animal. Others even said Brett deserved the bite for trying to grab Sam while he was frightened.
There was some tension on Twitter; who was the real victim here?
Brett tweeted a video showing him in a doctor’s room getting a shot saying, “Thanks, Sam” while a nurse sticks the needle in his arm and he smiles through the pain, taking his shot like a champ.
I guess you can never be too careful, Brett. And for Sam, this was a good trial run. Not every escape artist gets it right on the first try, plus there’s always next year.
Unless we’re Bill Murray and we’re stuck in the time loop of Groundhog Day the movie, then Sam can try again every day until he gets it right. Best of luck to you, you fearless little fur ball.
