It's Groundhog day, what's the verdict?

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - So how about the prognosticators at Chehaw Park?     The Meerkats were let loose around 11 AM to see if they could find their shadows.     The sun wasn't shining, so they didn't see their shadows.

That's good news to the other animals who've endured a cold winter.   The cheetahs even watched as the Meerkats made their prediction, hoping they wouldn't have to endure six more weeks of winter.

Zoo Director Kevin Walls said, "The official prognostication by Ashate is when he come onto his sentry point, he did not see his shadow and that means that spring is coming soon for Southern Georgia and we're real excited."    

As a reward for giving us all an early spring, the meerkats were given a tasty treat of crickets after their hard work.
