In a time of such heightened international tensions, Ebola outbreaks, and Walking Dead premiers, even significant tragedies can fall by the wayside. The membership of the New York Young Republicans would like to extend their belated sympathies to the family of Charlotte, the famed groundhog of the Staten Island Zoo, who recently passed. According to Fox News, Charlotte has died, most likely as a result of internal injuries sustained after being dropped by Mayor Bill De Blasio on Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2014.

The mayor is not at fault for her death, claimed neighsayers who have been quick to point out the Mayor’s preoccupation with banning horses in Central Park as evidence of his unyielding reverence for the City’s beloved animals.

Learning of Charlotte’s demise, a New York Young Republican spokesperson shared the Club’s sorrow, and stated “the Mayor sure dropped the ball -’errr groundhog – on this one.”
