Michael Gmoser, Butler County prosecutor, filed court documents announcing he was dropping the fraud charges against the Pennsylvania groundhog as the animal "has a defense with teeth in it -- his handler stepped up to the burrow to take full responsibility for misinterpreting said defendant's prediction of an early spring."

"In these serious times, I hope this case brought a light-hearted moment to all concerned with a warm welcome to spring ahead," Gmoser wrote in the memorandum in support of his dismissal of the charge.
