SUN PRAIRIE, Wisc. (CNN) – This Groundhog’s Day will be one to remember for a Wisconsin mayor, and a day he hopes he doesn’t have to relive.

It was a frigid day as all eyes and ears waited Monday to see what Jimmy the groundhog had to say about the coming of spring in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.

Jimmy made a grand entrance and as the ceremony got underway, Sun Prairie Mayor Jonathan Freund’s ear was about to experience winter’s bite, literally. No one saw it coming but Jimmy opened wide and bit down on the mayor’s ear.

Mayor Freund’s ear is fine and he took it all in stride. Jimmy says spring will come early in Sun Prairie.
