Groundhog Bites Mayor in the middle of interview - Watch

Groundhog bites mayor Jon Freund during traditional ceremony in Wisconsin, According to tradition in the US, the emerging of the groundhog from its burrow on Groundhog Day, will determine how much winter weather remains.

Freund flinched but managed to carry on with his speech, where he declared Jimmy had forecast an early spring.

But WISC-TV reported that during the Groundhog Day celebrations, things got a little tense when Jimmy’s handlers accused the mayor of making a mistake – and Jimmy had actually predicted six more weeks of winter.

The city of Wisconsin later released a statement saying only the mayor had the ability to translate the furry rodent’s forecast.

The main Groundhog Day celebrations take place in Pennsylvania – where Punxsutawney Phil, the legendary woodchuck who gained notoriety in the Bill Murray film of the same name, also gives his own weather predictions.

Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow on February 2, winter will last six more weeks.

If he does not, spring will come early.
