NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg *bitten* - not eaten - by groundhog

Preliminary, confusing blog reports out of New York City earlier today suggested that NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg had been attacked and eaten by a large pack of groundhogs. Those reports were in error. In fact, it was just a bite on his hand, and was treated by the devoted and beloved public official by wrapping the affected finger with a napkin. From this, video below:

Bloomberg had tried to coax the animal out of his wood cottage with some treats when the furry critter went hog wild on him... Since the 2-year-old animal was born and raised in captivity and has had no interaction with other animals, there is no fear it has rabies, according to zoo officials.
