Mayor pardons biting groundhog

The mayor of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin officially pardoned Jimmy the groundhog.

Jimmy bit Mayor Jon Freund on the ear when making his winter prediction Monday.

At a city council meeting Monday night, Freund absolved Jimmy of any perceived wrong doing.

Despite calls from PETA to keep Jimmy out of the Groundhog Day celebration, Freund said Jimmy will continue to make his yearly prediction.
