For Immediate Release:

We are sure that Mayor Bill de Blasio, who cares about animals, will be devastated. The blame lies with the organizers, and PETA has been after them for years—and still is—to stop disturbing and tossing around a groundhog for this gimmick. This groundhog needs to be the last to suffer and die for a cruel and bizarre “holiday.” Just as ball runs are replacing bull runs, the stupid, thoughtless, and inhumane groundhog gimmick needs to go, too.
