Dog runs on pitch, interrupts Swiss Super League soccer match

Sunday's Swiss Super League soccer match between FC Zurich and Zion was briefly interrupted when a dog ran onto the pitch. 

It happened during the 40th minute of the match with the score tied at 1-1. With the game action taking place towards the middle of the field, a white dog ran in from the sideline and towards the corner of the field, where it found a spot to stop and look around for a while. A man ran down from the stands and was able to get the dog's attention to lure it off the field. 

We have seen our share of animals interrupting sporting events, consisting of different animals and covering several sports. There isn't much that can be done about wild animals, but why are people bringing their cats and dogs to the games? Our advice: leave the pets at home. 

Overall, the delay lasted for less than a minute, but it provided the players and officials with a comedy break. Neither team scored another goal in the match, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
