Might We Have Another de Blasio/Groundhog Story With Mike Frerichs?

You guys probably have heard about this unfortunate incident in New York where the Mayor ran into some trouble with a critter passing away after he used it as a political prop. 

From Politico:
The groundhog that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio accidentally dropped on Groundhog Day died of internal injuries, a new report finds. 
According to a story in The New York Post on Thursday, the Staten Island Zoo found the groundhog, which squirmed through de Blasio’s fingers and fell to the ground during a Feb. 2 photo opp, dead in its enclosure a week later. It died from “acute internal injuries,” The Post said, with sources telling the paper the injuries were “consistent with a fall.” 
The Post also claimed a coverup, noting that after the groundhog’s death, the zoo told the public that the animal had died of natural causes. New York Assemblyman Matthew Titone (D-Staten Island) said he was informed that the animal died of old age and “went to that big farm in the sky.”
Is somebody checking on that cat?
