Impressive Animals: #2 Purple squirrel

A purple squirrel was found in a Pennsylvania backyard, and folks were flummoxed as to how it got its unusual coloring. One theory: It fell into a portable toilet. The couple who caught the squirrel took a photograph that stirred much debate, and then released the squirrel back into the wild. Its whereabouts are unknown, and the local game commission refuses to launch a hunt for it.
