Squirrel-Skunk love child braves taunts of other forest creatures simply to “collect nuts like all the other squirrels do.”

November 10, 2008

The squirrel in the photograph above resides near Sauble Beach in the South Bruce Penninsula of Canada. Local homeowners were surprised by squirrel’s unusually coloring. So they snapped some pics of the squirrel at the park.

The newspaper running this story, The Record, suggests that this is a piebald squirrel

— the term piebald applies to any animal displaying depigmented white fur.

The condition is genetically tied in to the development of the animal’s nervous system. According to some sources, it’s most common in horses but does affect other species.

Your Daily Chum readers are far too savvy to fall for such an obvious lie. Let’s face it, the squirrel is the byproduct of an ages-old situation. Let me explain.

One unplanned offspring who will feel a stranger in both worlds.


So very sad.
