The mayor of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin has learned a valuable lesson about one of his city's most famous critters: you don't want to get too close to a groundhog.
During the Groundhogs Day celebration Monday in Sun Prairie, Jimmy's handler held the groundhog next the face of Mayor Jonathan Freund and Jimmy promptly bit down on the mayor's ear.
Freund flinched, but went on with his declaration that there would be an early spring due to Jimmy's prognostication. The Groundhog Day celebration became even more precarious when Jimmy's handlers, Jerry and Maria Hahn, said the mayor had gotten it wrong and that there would be six more weeks of winter.
