A Friggin Purple Squirrel

No I am not a gay squirrel!

No I am not a gay squirrel!

Can anyone explain why there is a purple squirrel flitting around the school grounds of Meoncross School in Stubbington, Hants? Teachers and children have all witnessed this colored rodent (named Pete) merrily going about his daily business. Some believe the little mutant has met with an unfortunate accident such as falling into purple paint.Lorraine Orridge, the school’s registrar, believes Pete may have discovered some old printer toner in the old building he hangs around. Wildlife expert Chris Packham said “Squirrels will chew anything even if it’s obviously inedible. It is possible he has been chewing on a purple ink cartridge and then groomed that colouring into his fur.” But in any case Pete will soon moult and be once again be just another  boring old grey squirrel.
