-- A New Hampshire ski resort is offering asylum to Punxsutawney Phil after police in the state issued an arrest warrant for the groundhog, accusing him of failing to disclose that six more weeks of winter would bring "mountains of snow."
The Gunstock Mountain Resort told ABC News today that it would welcome Punxatawney Phil to its slopes.
"We figured we'd have a little fun with it," Bill Quigley, director of marketing and sales at Gunstock Mountain Resort, said. "We figured it was the perfect place for the governor of Pennsylvania to send Phil up here just for awhile so he can enjoy winter."
