Mayor Michael Bloomberg was bitten by a ground hog during a ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo Monday morning.
Bloomberg spoke to the media about the incident later that day, suggesting that Chuck very well could be a 'terrorist rodent' agent.
The city's prognosticating rodent, Charles G. Hogg, also known as Staten Island Chuck, bit through Bloomberg's glove when the mayor was trying to coax the animal into view with an ear of corn.
