Reporter Shannon Smith visited the Central Carolina Boat and Fishing Expo at the Greensboro Coliseum this morning and got the surprise of her life.

Shortly after Twiggy displayed his water-skiing skills, he decided he wanted to play with Shannon.


“They like to go to the tallest person… like climbing the tallest tree. So I need to wrap this up before Twiggy jumps on my head,” Shannon said, unknowingly foreshadowing what would happen next.

Twiggy, almost as if he heard the the comment, leaps toward Shannon’s head. As most people would do, Shannon ducked and Twiggy landed on several chairs off camera.

For those concerned, Twiggy was not injured.
