Bill de Blasio groundhog dies after fall

The groundhog that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio accidentally dropped on Groundhog Day earlier this year died of internal injuries, a new report finds.

According to a story in The New York Post on Thursday, the Staten Island Zoo found the groundhog, which squirmed through de Blasio’s fingers and fell to the ground during a Feb. 2 photo opp, dead in its enclosure a week later. It died from “acute internal injuries,” The Post said, with sources telling the paper the injuries were “consistent with a fall.”


The Post also claimed a coverup, noting that after the groundhog’s death, the zoo told the public that the animal had died of natural causes. New York Assemblyman Matthew Titone (D-Staten Island) said he was informed that the animal died of old age and “went to that big farm in the sky.”

The zoo’s representative disputed the paper’s report, saying, “It appears unlikely that the animal’s death is related to the events on Groundhog Day.”

De Blasio’s office was unaware of the death of Charlotte until it was informed by The Post.

The death of the groundhog, known as “Staten Island Chuck,” also led to another revelation - Chuck had been secretly swapped for another groundhog, “Charlotte,” for the de Blasio photo op over fears that the real Chuck would bite the mayor, as had happened in the past with then-Mayor Bloomberg.

Word on the street is that it was actually de Blasio look-alike Shakey the Mohel that dropped poor Chuck:
