A community in Southwestern Ohio is demanding answers after a less than accurate prediction from Punxsutawney Phil.
FOX News Radio's Joy Piazza explains:
He's been doing it for years.
Announcer: "Unbelievable. And Phil is always accurate."
But thanks to a late-season cold snap, Punxsutawney Phil might have some explaining to do about this year's 'early spring' prediction. Mike Gmoser is a Prosecutor in Butler County, Ohio who's putting Phil on notice.
Gmoser: "It's definitely not spring. It's a snowstorm. And temperatures in the teens. Something's wrong with Phil. You know Punxsutawney has some answers that he needs to give and I think I'm just gonna have to indict him."
The penalty? Either Phil be replaced, or be put to death.
Gmoser: "I'm not as cold and heartless as you might think. But you know I deal with a lot of rats every day."
Gmoser also says a critter from Ohio would be a better choice.
