Suck it, non purple squirrel having states.

As this is from Jersey Shore, I can't help but wonder if it over-tanned itself.

I can find a way to dye the fur of wildlife and then take a picture, too.

/ok, I am not going to invest the time to figure it out, but being snarky is half of the fun

1) capture squirrel
2) dye purple
3) ???

Pennsylvania Purple Squirrel? Is that some hip new slang for male genitalia?

I was trying to think of a way to make a joke about FARK's mascot squirrel and Grape Nuts, but I'm drawing a blank.

If this is real and not a prank or an accident, that's one helluva mutation. I remember hearing rumors in the early 2000s of blue-grey mutation variant Cocakteils, but to this day I have never seen a picture of one.

Florida has blond squirrels and non-albino white squirrels. We also have a rather healthy population of hawks, ospreys and bald eagles, so how long they last is anyone's guess.

/I remember Canada had red ones and black ones

This! The first thing that came to mind was past stories of people dyeing their pet dogs and cats various colors. Lots of parks have tons of super-tame squirrels. Just imagine if someone caught a bunch (25?) and made them all sorts of different colors... maybe poke-a-dot... glow-in-the-dark...

Heh did not know black squirrels were an oddity (Canadian). I have the fattest black squirrels in my back yard on a daily basis.

Might be due to light wavelengths changing.

Either that or a new strain of medical marijuana.

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."

What's the point of setting them loose elsewhere? Do mother squirrels leave their nests even if they have dependent babies? I feel like this is a very misguided action.

My mother used to do that with the field mice we would get in the house during the winter. Trap them and release at the golf course. Never thought about whether they had little baby mice around, just wanted them out of the house.

My eldest kitty, Biscuit, the Grey Slayer, informs me that she finds the idea of a grape flavored squirrel disgusting, but she'd still kill it...just not eat it.

Purple Kitten Found

This kitten is 100% real but we let it go because properly documenting its existence might frighten it.

This was by no means a five minute Photoshop job. Promise. Cross my heart.

Royce Chemical (a dye house) East Rutherford,NJ ;The company liquified solid dyes ( made in China) for blue jeans, squirrels would climb in there. to keep warm. running about looking for something to eat or drink, would get coated with the powder. Instant Blue Squirrels!

Kool-Aid powder is a dirt cheap and non-toxic way to dye animals. Looks like someone got some red and blue (or the grape I guess) and had a bit of fun. People do this kind of stuff to their cats and dogs too, it wears off after a while.

I suspect the purple squirrel will become not so purple in a week or so.

another article stated this "Krish Pillai, a professor at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, believes that the coloring may have been caused bromide laced frack water.

"This is not good at all. That color looks very much like Tyrian purple. It is a natural organobromide compound seen in molluscs and rarely found in land animals. The squirrel has too much bromide in its system possibly from all the bromide laced frack water it's been drinking. I would raise the alarm. This could mean bladder cancer for humans down the road.""

Now you have to wonder if Fox edited this (if they pulled it from a wire), or is this guy is a enviroweenie whack job using the squirrel as an opportunity to attack a frack job.

Yes, but that's all about the size of their nuts.

The Huffington Post also ran the bladder cancer quote, so it's not a partisan thing.
