Purple Squirrel In Jersey Shore

02.10.12 | Bob Price

A couple from Central Pennsylvania found a purple squirrel in their backyard this week.  It got stuck in a trap set up behind the home of Percy and Connie Emert of Jersey Shore.          They put up the trap to keep the squirrels away from the bird feeders.  Animal experts say this is the first purple squirrel they've ever encountered.  There have been albino, black and even red squirrels documented.
The purple squirrel from Jersey Shore has became an online sensation and even has its own Facebook page and Twitter account.
