-- Police in New Hampshire have issued an "arrest warrant" for Punxsutawney Phil, citing his failure to disclose that six more weeks of winter "would consist of mountains of snow."
Merrimack police uploaded a humorous post to its Facebook page that it was issuing a "warrant" for Phil, the groundhog who saw his shadow last Monday and "forecasted" six more weeks of winter.
"We have received several complaints from the public that this little varmint is held up in a hole, warm and toasty," reads the department's post, which has received nearly 2,000 "likes" and has been shared more than 3,400 times.
