Purple Squirrel Found In Pennsylvania

A couple in Pennsylvania has found a purple squirrel in their backyard. The last time the world saw a purple squirrel was in the UK in 2008. No one knows why the squirrels are this way.

According to Accuweather, the couple who found the squirrel said:

"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."

Connie plans to release the squirrel back into the wild in the next few days.
