    It was a day in the park for about 40 prisoners - handcuffed to each other, a fence and even a children's slide.  Authorities have been holding some crime suspects in a public park in western Bogota's La Granja neighborhood because they say there is no more room at a local detention center.

NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

Staten Island Chuck did not have much interest in being manhandled by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The groundhog wriggled its way out of the mayor's hands and plopped to the ground during a publicity event at a Groundhog Day ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo.

He landed in an enclosure so he didn't escape.

Mayor de Blasio wore thick safety gloves for the event. Mayor Bloomberg was bitten during the photo op a few years ago.

Some in the crowd booed when Chuck predicted six more weeks of winter.
