Not a Groundhogs Day

Two New Jersey teens face animal cruelty charges and up to 6 months in jail for viciously attacking a pair of groundhogs.

Christopher Welch, 18 and a 17 year-old accomplice shot and killed a young groundhog with a paintball gun. The two were just getting started as they struck the mother groundhog with a board, trapped it in a net, and set it on fire with gasoline while it was still alive. I have said it before, you gotta love Jersey.

No word yet if the boys were taking revenge for the groundhog's dire prediction of 6 more weeks of winter earlier this year.
