Why do we allow people to hunt groundhogs, especially on Groundhog Day? It just doesn't seem very sporting or even challenging to kill one when it pops its head up. I think it is excessively inhumane, more so than regular hunting.

From a story in this week's Mountain Xpress newspaper:

"Bowhunters from around the nation will also be happy as they attempt to spear a cheerful whistle pig with a razor-adorned arrow from 50 yards out as it pokes its head out at the WNC Nature Center’s annual Groundhog Day ceremony."
The rest of the report is here:

Something should be done!! Why haven't our city officials stopped this? Too many neo-cons on Asheville City Council, that's why!

That poor animal, all he wants to do is sleep eat and get fat. Leave him alone, when he jumps up and down and acts like he is in need of a companion then you know spring is on the way.
