In what Canadians are taking as an extremely bad omen, one of the country’s most famous groundhogs was found dead just hours before he was set to make his prediction for the year.
Fred la marmotte, the beloved Québécois furry oracle, was discovered dead before he could complete a North American tradition of predicting the onset of spring on Groundhog Day on Thursday.
A crowd of children and parents had formed, waiting excitedly for nine-year-old Fred to appear at an annual event in Val-d’Espoir, Quebec, before event organiser Roberto Blondin announced the stubby burrower’s demise.
“When I went to wake him last night he had no vital signs,” Mr Blondin said. “He most likely died during hibernation.” Rise
Spring never came that year
Never heard of this particular rodent.
Not giving 1 shit either.
God its embarrassing up here!
I’d kill myself too if I had to live in Canada….
How much ground could a groundhog grind, if a groundhog could grind ground?
Was it vaccinated?
Apparently groundhogs don’t live to be ten…
The Fifth Dimension
So what did it know about Hillary & when did it know it?!
So, was he found in Richard Geres’ bum?
…well, THAT’S a bad sign…
At least 1 rodent out of Canada…
What? They didn’t have a spare ready for just such an event? Seems like really poor planning.
My daughter from Nashville told me this about an hr. ago while I was talking to her on the phone with her. At first, I didn’t believe it, but it looks like she was right. Shouldn’t the cheesehead ground hog have been named Guy (pronounced Gee) Le Varmint.
He offed himself when he hoid DeBlasio wuz headin Nort!
Even groundhogs are ‘dying suddenly’
He ate some smelly cheese-couldn’t tell it had gone bad.
Fred Le Mar-morte.
