CINCINNATI - The famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil could be headed to court.
A prosecutor in Ohio has filed "charges" against the animal.
The prosecutor says Phil promised an early spring, and he was wrong! The Northeast was pounded with more than a foot of snow on the first day of spring. The prosecutor says he's sick of it, and wants someone to pay!
It's all in good fun, of course, and Phil's handlers are getting in on the joke as well.
