Sun Prairie mayor bitten by groundhog

An annual tradition in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin took an unexpected turn this year. 

The town was holding their Groundhog Day celebration, and when the mayor leaned in to hear Jimmy the Groundhog's prediction about if there would be six more weeks of winter, Jimmy bit his ear!

Even though it was sunny, the mayor declared Jimmy did not see his shadow and there would be an early spring. However, the rodent's caretaker says the mayor misinterpreted Jimmy and there will actually be six more weeks of winter.
