NY Mayor Bill de Blasio dropped Staten Island Chuck during the Groundhog Day ritual.
Staten Island Chuck did not have much interest in being manhandled by the Mayor as he wriggled its way out of the mayor's hands and plopped to the ground during a publicity event at a Groundhog Day ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo.
He landed in an enclosure so he didn't escape but he did see his shadow indicating six more weeks of winter.

Punxsutawney Phil, in Punxsutawney Pennsylvania, also saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter.
