This is a purple squirrel. And Toronto thinks it’s special because it has white squirrels – well, actually, the mythology is supposed to be that it’s just one white squirrel in Trinity Bellwoods park, but I don’t know how anyone knows that the squirrel they’re seeing is the same one over and over again. Maybe it’s because two white squirrels have never been seen at the same time. But it’s still a pretty big leap, if you ask me, which NOBODY EVER DOES.
So, according to Fox News, this little dude was found in Jersey Shore, Pa.
“We have bird feeders out in our yard, and the squirrels are constantly into them,” said Jersey Shore resident Connie Emert. “My husband traps them and then sets them free elsewhere so they don’t get into your bird feeders.”
“Emert said she had spotted a purple squirrel on her property but no one believed her.
“I kept telling my husband I saw a purple one out in the yard. ‘Oh sure you did’ he kept telling me,” said Emert. “Well, he checked the trap around noon on Sunday and sure enough, there it was.””
This is news in Jersey Shore. Ha. This amuses me. But I disapprove of Connie’s husband possibly taking parent squirrels away from their babies and leaving the babies to die for the sake of his damn bird feeder. Feed birds but kill squirrels? Bad mandate.
I wonder what happened to Party Squirrel here, if he just rolled in something or what.
