Where did that groundhog go?

And today, Shubenacedie Sam, Nova Scotia’s groundhog decided that Spring is right around the corner. Which goes against the predictions made by his American counterparts, who all think Spring is still 6 weeks away. Nova Scotians apparently don’t trust their own groundhog:

“Sue Penney, an education co-ordinator at Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Wildlife Park, said she doubts Sam is right even half the time.”

A couple of years ago, I was actually confronted with a wild groundhog: not knowing what it exactly was (since I’m European) the only thing I remember exclaiming was ‘Look a ….groundhog?’. Quite an appropriate word for an animal, I would say.
