Did you ever see a purple squirrel?
No Explanation for Pennsylvania's Purple Squirrel
Connie and Percy Emert took all the photos of the squirrel, and posted on them Facebook.
A Pennsylvania couple trapped, of all things, a purple
squirrel on Sunday. Percy and Connie Emert, of Jersey Shore, Pa. caught
the unusual animal when trying to keep birds safe from the rodents.
"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."
No one knows why the squirrel is purple.
