NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 02:  Staten Island Chuck, a groundhog who, according to tradition, looks for his shadow to predict whether or not the region will experience six more weeks of winter or the coming of spring, looks on at the Staten Island Zoo on February 2, 2015 in the Staten Island borough of New York City. The annual event caused controversy last year after Mayor de Blasio was handed the groundhog and dropped him and the animal died days later. This year the Mayor did not touch the animal and the groundhog did not see his shadow, signalling the coming of spring.  (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
