This video still shows Staten Island Chuck nibbling on Mayor Michael Bloomberg's hand.
Perhaps lashing out against budget cuts for local zoos, or perhaps just because he wasn't ready to be awakened from his winter nap, Staten Island Chuck took a nibble out of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's hand during this morning's Groundhog Day festivities at the Staten Island Zoo.

"His hand was nicked," a Bloomberg spokesman said. The mayor is up to date on his Tetanus shot, so he simply washed his wounded finger and put on a bandage.
