On a day where temperatures will be about 50 degrees lower than they were on this date last year, Butler County's prosecutor took action.

Prosecutor Michael Gmoser "indicted" Punxsutawney Phil for "misrepresentation of early spring, a unclassified felony."

Gmoser said that the groundhog "did purposely, and with prior calculation and design, cause the people to believe that Spring would come early."

"Contrary to the Groundhog day report, a snowstorm and record low temperatures have been and are predicted to continue for the near future," the "indictment" read.

Gmoser said that the people call for the death penalty for the groundhog due to "aggravating circumstances."
