A story from Telegraph.co.uk:


Teachers and pupils at Meoncross School in Stubbington, Hants, were amazed when they saw the creature through the window during a lesson.
Since the squirrel, now nicknamed Pete, was first seen, it has become a regular fixture at the school but no one has been able to say whether the animal has fallen into purple paint, had a run-in with some purple dye, or whether there is another explanation.
Dr Mike Edwards, an English teacher, said: "I was sitting in my classroom and looked out the window and saw it sitting on the fence. I had to do a double take.
"Since then it's been a bit of a regular at the school - everyone's seen it.
"We thought it might have been paint or something but then when you look at it up close, it's an all over coat, not in patches like you'd expect if it had been near some paint.
"Its fur actually looks purple all the way through. It's an absolute mystery."

Now this is talent! Horses are very smart animals. They are working animals, racing animals, chasing animals, and gaming animals. Now they are painting animals. I don't believe they will paint your house though! (Be sure to watch the time lapse at the end of this video. It's very funny.)

Wolf Plays with Grizzly Cubs... Gets Charged by Mom

Uncommon footage of a wolf just playing around. Mom is overprotective and bluffs a charge. It's rare to see different species interacting this way. Sound included, listen carefully.

Evidently Rochester Police Department has a clever officer who writes up the police log and then submits it to the local, Rochester Times, (weekly) newspaper. The Rochester Times is a division of the conglomerate mega media empire of Foster's Daily Democrat, out of Dover, NH. (a not so small town but still backwoods) These log entries are all entered entered into this blog verbatim.
