PETA is once again throwing a fit regarding the ceremony of Punxsutawney Phil to try to spare the groundhog from the stress it gets from the very short ceremony. Seriously??￼￼ ￼They think that a robot should be used instead. That’s ridiculous. Everybody knows a robot cannot predict the weather.￼
Plus, Bill Murray and the gang would have to re-shoot groundhog day, the movie. They would also need to delete the scene where he drives the pick up truck which holds him and the groundhog over a cliff. ￼￼￼￼ otherwise they could just replace him with another robot to predict the weather.
I think PETA is a good organization that does a great job of protecting animals of all kinds from harm but this is ridiculous. And this is not the first time they have protested the use of the groundhog.￼ I think that if they really care about the groundhog they should pay for his therapy. Come on now, it makes just about as much sense as the robot replacement.
Plus, A different groundhog could be used each year so they would only have to go through one round of therapy each. What’s next? Eliminate the wood chukkers from the Geico commercial?￼￼￼
