STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK (PIX11 — Looks like winter may be ending soon in New York City.

Staten Island Chuck did not see his shadow Saturday morning at the annual Groundhog’s Day ceremony. Chuck’s prediction was validated by Punxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania who also did not see his shadow.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn stepped in for Mayor Bloomberg  who did not attend this years ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo.

Quinn wore protective gloves while handling Chuck, just to make sure she would not be bitten like Bloomberg was back in 2009.

    Chuck doubtless knew of Quinn's disgraceful record on animal issues and was afraid if he bit her, she would bite him back.
