Pennsylvania's famous groundhog is under fire

Friday, March 22, 2013

Pennsylvania's famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil is under fire for his prediction back in February.

The Butler County, Ohio prosecutor has handed out an "indictment" against Punxsutawney Phil.

Last month, Phil predicted an early spring.

Instead we've seen record low temperatures and snowstorms.

Prosecutor Mike Gmoser sent out a tongue-in-cheek press release, stating that the misrepresentation of early spring is an unclassified felony.
