Animal lover Carrie Underwood thought she was doing the right thing when she got her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, to rescue a chipmunk that had gotten into their house.
In a video she posted on Saturday, the Grammy winner showed her big brave hubby cornering the little critter in their bathroom.
“A squirrel got into our house,” she said in the Vine clip, before being corrected by Fisher, 33, who told her it was a chipmunk. As he grabbed the animal to put it into a plastic container and take it outside, it began squealing, which prompted Underwood to plead, “Don’t hurt it.” Oh, the irony.
“Mikey, show me your hand,” the Underwood, 30, told her husband of three years. He held up his right hand, showing off two red bite marks. “Newfound respect for the mighty chipmunk,” he said.
And just in case you were wondering what happened to the fearless beast after its savage attack on the Nashville Predators center, the Grammy winner had an update: “The chipmunk is back outside where it belongs!” she Tweeted. “Chipmunk -1, @mikefisher1212’s hand -0.”
