STROUDSBURG, Pa. — Punxsutawney Phil is a wanted … groundhog.
A Pennsylvania sheriff’s officer has put up a wanted poster for Phil.
The handlers of the groundhog last month said the furry rodent called for six more weeks of winter after seeing his shadow. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says that expired last week, yet a spring storm brought more snow to the Northeast on Wednesday and Thursday.
Cpl. Scott Martin tells WBRE-TV he created the poster and placed it on the “wanted wall” because he is sick of snow in the spring.
The poster claims Phil is wanted for deception. Phil is described as having “brown and grey hair, brown eyes, sharp teeth.”
Records dating to 1887 show Phil has predicted more winter 103 times while forecasting an early spring just 18 times.

DEPEW, N.Y. — An upstate New York police department fed up with lingering cold weather has placed winter under arrest.
The Post-Standard reports the Depew Police Department wrote Friday in a humorous Facebook post that it had arrested the season. Police said any more snow winter produces would be held against it in court.
The department also called for groundhog Punxsutawney Phil to turn himself in for predicting six more weeks of winter. Police joke that they’re willing to look past winter’s “most recent transgressions” if it works with the department.
New York has experienced wintry weather this month and high winds that caused power outages.

Police, fed up with lingering cold weather,
Warmest winter of the century. Just ask a truther.
