In the United States, the Marmot Suddenly Died on the Eve of the Prediction of Spring

marmot died

In the American city of Miltown, New Jersey named Mel died. The animal was known as a local weather forecaster. However, he did not have time to live to see Marmot Day and passed away on January 31. The rodent's official Facebook page confirmed his death.

Given that the average lifespan of a marmot is around 3 years, that's not such a shock. The problem is that most of his fellow marmots hibernate, which is why the city authorities have not been able to find a replacement for the marmot.

Due to sudden death, the annual ceremony was canceled. This day is traditionally celebrated in the United States on February 2. The marmots foresee an early spring or a long winter. The weather is determined by the behavior of animals. If the marmot sees his shadow when leaving the burrow, then the next six weeks will be cold, and if not, warm.
