Not surprised he was re-elected. Never agreed with his politics. Just glad I live on Lawn Guyland...

No, because he actually killed a groundhog.

Staten Island’s famous groundhog died after Bill de Blasio dropped it

It was in the news and everything. How did you not know about this?

The groundhog fell out of deBlasio's hands as it didn't appreciate being held. That has to be like an 11 foot drop.
I'm so sorry, thoughts and prays go out to the groundhogs' family. Hopefully the groundhog went peacefully in his sleep regardless of the fall. I mean we aren't ever going to know for sure as he was found dead days later in his cage after a complete physical after the fall.

From your own link;

Morris said the animal was given a thorough medical examination in the hours after the incident, and the check-up “revealed no evidence of trauma or pain.” The groundhog then participated in several events over the next week with no obvious ill effects from the fall…“We don’t know how the animal suffered the injuries but we don’t think it was from the fall,” Morris said. “We believe it happened sometime the night before she was found dead.”

Here's the important part you left out of your story that needs to be known for parity to the situation. Besides, whenever a person handles an animal, it is always a difficult thing to try and guess what the animal is going to do or how they will react to being handled. As your own story reveals a former Mayor was bitten by a groundhog. Therefore, is it any wonder that it could have been dropped? However, the following piece from your story does not blame de Blasio.

"Here’s why, Morris told the AP, that the zoo thinks it unlikely the Groundhog Day fall killed “Chuck:”

"Morris said the animal was given a thorough medical examination in the hours after the incident, and the check-up “revealed no evidence of trauma or pain.” The groundhog then participated in several events over the next week with no obvious ill effects from the fall…“We don’t know how the animal suffered the injuries but we don’t think it was from the fall,” Morris said. “We believe it happened sometime the night before she was found dead.”
