Wiarton Willie was taken off life support yesterday by his vet and died at the age of 8.

For real this time – did you know that when he died before and there was a big funeral, that it was a stuffed albino groundhog that died years earlier? The ensuing scandal became known as Williegate.

Rest in peace Willie.
