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."

Note to self, don't mess with a working groundhog.
