Wish it was Punxsutawney Phil.

Phil had him whacked. He doesn't like competition.

To this day, it remains with Brouwer in his attic.

Well, a boy's best friend is his weather-predicting-but-not-really groundhog.

Wow the second half of that article was a real roller coaster ride.

It's no surprise. Wiarton Willie had been losing weight for some time. His handlers said that he became so thin that he had to stand up twice to make a shadow. R.I.P. Willie.

Brouwer said, adding that the dead groundhogs were found in the tunnel, part of which he said would fill with water when snow melted or it rained.

"When they put the tunnel in they didn't vent it, so it became a p-trap, and the groundhogs went to sleep and drowned in there," Brouwer said.

Well that's poor engineering.

Well, to be fair, Phil has never been reported as having eaten babbys (aka his "understudies") one year, like Willie was accused of having done.

Only Wiarton Willie can say: "Ah eat BABBYS!"

(I'm so sorry for your lots)

Nick Nostril: Read that as Willie Horton weather predicting groundhog.

As in "How's the weather in Massachusetts this weekend, Willie?"

Doesn't sound like these people should be allowed to keep grounhogs as pets. Full Size
