'Beardsley Bart,' the Local Groundhog, Agrees with Punxsutawney Phil

He lives at the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, which released his findings Saturday morning.

Who needs Punxsutawney Phil when you have “Beardsley Bart?” Beardsley Bart, Bridgeport’s own Prognosticating Prairie Dog, came out early this morning to share his weather forecast with a small gathering of friends. Gregg Dancho, director of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, served as Bart’s interpreter.

“Beardsley Bart is a very early riser and when he came out this morning, he confirmed that he did not see his shadow,” explained Dancho. “He’s happy to report spring is just around the corner and he looks forward to all his friends coming to visit him soon.”

Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo, near Beardsley Park on Noble Avenue, Bridgeport, is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. all year ‘round.
