As snow storms continue to assault the North East, local New Hampshire police have issued a warrant for the arrest of the famous groundhog, Penxsutawney Phil.

Merrimack Police Department Issue Arrest Warrant

On Groundhog Day, Penxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania, saw his shadow, announcing that there would be six more weeks of winter, but it seems he failed to communicate just how awful those six weeks would be. For that, the Merrimack Police Department jokingly announced that it issued an arrest warrant for the animal.

“We have received several complaints from the public that this little varmint is held up in a hole, warm and toasty. He told several people that Winter would last 6 more weeks, however he failed to disclose that it would consist of mountains of snow,” wrote the Department on their official Facebook page.

New England has been experiencing a record-breaking amount of snowfall, and another storm is predicted to hit on Sunday. According to reports, snow storms have already used up 70% of New Hampshire’s Department of Transportation winter maintenance budget.

The Merrimack Police Department isn’t the only organization suggesting the groundhog be punished for the bitter winter. Seth Meyers also joked about the increasingly bad weather on his show, Late Night with Seth Meyers.
