The 2012 Groundhog Day results are in… Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. So what does that mean for us? Well, besides six more weeks of winter it means that we are celebrating today with 20 hours of programming featuring another rodent. Paying homage to the 1993 classic Groundhog Dog where Bill Murray’s character relives Groundhog Day over and over (and over and over again), you can now relive American Beaver again and again (and again and again). Did we spoil the surprise? We kind of wanted you to feel like Bill Murray… wondering when the madness would stop and when you could move on to February 3rd (and in our case, your next regularly scheduled program). Well, we didn’t want to scare you that much… so now you’re warned. Happy Groundhog Day!
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming: A little pond set against the backdrop of the Grand Teton Mountains may not look like much, but it is the hub of action. A tireless engineer, one determined rodent takes on the job of building a pond while facing the challenges of predators and full fury of the elements. Pictured here, an American Beaver crosses over a frozen pond.
