Who knew? Groundhog bites Wisconsin mayor during ceremony

This is one Groundhog Day this mayor will want to forget.

The folks over in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, host their own version of the holiday with their own little critter. He’s no Punxsutawney Phil, but Jimmy the Groundhog has developed his own talent for testing the weather.

But Wisconsinites aren’t content if Jimmy just spots his shadow. They want to have a conversation with him. Apparently Mayor Jonathan Freund understands the secret language of prognosticating woodchucks.

Now, Jimmy may have just been having a bad day or maybe Freund talked a little trash about his den, but when Freund leaned in to get the prediction, Jimmy decided to take a bite out of his ear.

How many more weeks of winter is that, exactly?
