Purple Pete's Peculiar Pelt

Well whatever made the poppet Pete purple, it has made him a lil' local legend. Hope he keeps it- wouldn't that be cute, a whole race of purpley pelts. Pete's just a rebel! :)

Some residents of a southern English town have gone a little nutty trying to figure out why a local squirrel has purple fur, reports Britain's Metro.co.uk.
Dr. Mike Edwards, an English teacher at Meoncross School in Stubbington, Hampshire, first saw "Pete" the squirrel outside his classroom and was surprised at the critter's strange-colored fur. "When you look up close, it's an all-over coat, not in patches like you'd expect if it had been paint. It's an absolute mystery," he said.
