A purple (no, not pink or blue — purple) squirrel was captured on Sunday by a Pennsylvania couple, who later released the strange animal back into the wild, as if absolutely nothing was out of the ordinary.
The pair caught the creepy critter in a humane animal trap they set in their backyard to keep the rodents from getting into their birdfeeders.
Why on earth would anyone let this flesh-and-blood treasure escape? I mean, it's really quite cute, and I totally want one and of course, Snooki wants one, too. Plus, despite the little purple guy being on the run, he already has his own Facebook and Twitter accounts. Naturally.
