“Lights, camera, groundhog” cheers a press release from the department of Natural Resources.
Shubenacadie Sam, the most famous groundhog in Nova Scotia that isn’t AltaGas, can now be watched by curious perverts 24 hours a day through the “Sam Cam.” The initiative lets the breathless public check in on the rodent prior to Groundhog Day ceremonies on February 2.
“Sam is well loved by groundhog groupies around the world and the online Sam Cam is one of the most popular internet cameras this time of year," natural resources minister Lloyd Hines said in a release.
Hey, did you know that four percent of respondents thus far to The Coast’s Sex & Dating survey have performed as a webcam model over the last year? That’s the kind of bold entrepreneurship the Ivany Report calls for. (Also, if you haven’t already, please go take The Coast’s Sex & Dating survey.)
Sam can best be viewed at 8am, 11:45am and 4pm, says the province. Like the rest of us, he's most active at the times when he's fed.
Meanwhile, dangerous groundhog cavorting remains an unchecked problem in Halifax communities.
