|Cat running around on soccer field|
(Scroll down for video) A cute cat was able to stop a soccer game being watched by thousands and maybe even millions of people from around the world, according to video uploaded to the internet.
The major league Dutch soccer match was interrupted by the surprised cat running around on the field.
The game, which is known as football around the world is called soccer in the United States.
The game score of the Eredivisie match between FC Groningen and Heracles Almelo, was stuck at 0 to 0 before the cat made the game much more interesting to thousands of cheering fans.
The referee had to stop the game for some time, while the teams waited for the pet to be removed.
The cat was soon captured and removed by an administrator just before the break. It is currently unknown to whom the cat belonged to.
The Heracles team was possibly affected by the disruption, as they went on to lose 2 to 0 at home. The black cat may also have provided some bad luck, as the team was awarded a penalty when replays showed it should have been just a free kick.
“Pets make for some great entertainment. They are very cute and sometimes cause a lot of trouble,” Dawn Pearce, 18, who saw the game in Friesland, Netherlands told YourJewishNews.com.
This is not the first time that animals disrupted a major sporting event.
A group of kangaroos had no respect for the prestigious Women’s Open and disrupted the game, according to video uploaded to the internet.
Kangaroos on a golf course may be a common sight for any Australian golfer but they caused a stir at the Australian Women's Open in Canberra, last week.
The international field featuring 10 of the world's top 20 women golfers had to get used to the large animals bouncing around the fairways and grazing on the greens of the Royal Canberra championship course.
Australia's capital is typically dry in summer and by February kangaroos are drawn to the lush watered courses.
Local media said the drought of the 2000s saw so many kangaroos feeding on Canberra's watered lawns and parks, so they had to be executed because they posed a threat to motorists.
