tupai ungu masuk perangkap

Seekor tupai ungu yang dijerat sepasang suami isteri di AS mencetuskan sensasi di internet berhubung persoalan bagaimana haiwan tersebut mendapat warna pelik itu.

"Kami pun tidak tahu. Namun, ia benar-benar berwarna ungu. Ada orang mendakwa kami mencelup warna tersebut tetapi secara jujur, kami menemui tupai ini dan ia ungu," kata Percy Emert yang menemui mamalia berkenaan bersama isterinya, Connie.

Kata mereka, tupai itu memasuki perangkap pada Ahad lalu. Menurut laman web accuweather.com, pasangan berkenaan memasang perangkap di taman milik mereka di negeri Pennsylvania bagi melindungi burung peliharaan daripada haiwan pemangsa.

Mengulas tentang fenomena tersebut, seorang ahli meteorologi AS, Dan Kottlowski berkata: "Tupai jantan itu mungkin telah terjatuh ke dalam cat ungu."

Namun, pendapat tersebut disangkal oleh seorang komentator lain yang memberikan penjelasan lebih saintifik.

"Warna ungu itu merupakan sebatian bromida yang dilihat pada spesies moluska dan jarang didapati pada haiwan darat.

"Tupai tersebut memiliki terlalu banyak bromida dalam sistem badan, berkemungkinan besar kerana ia meminum air daripada sumber air dicemari bromida. Ini bermakna alam sekitar kita sudah tercemar dan ramai orang akan mendapat barah pundi kencing kelak," katanya.- AFP

Purple squirrel is a term used by employment recruiters to describe an unlikely job candidate with precisely the right education, experience, and qualifications that perfectly fits a job’s multifaceted requirements.

In theory, this prized “purple squirrel” could immediately handle all the expansive variety of responsibilities of a job description with no training and would allow businesses to function with fewer workers.There are also several recorded cases of actual squirrels with a purple coloration.

2012 Sighting
In 2012, a purple squirrel was sighted and captured in Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania. A news reporter from AccuWeather.com first reported the story on Tuesday, February 7 2012. The squirrel quickly became an internet sensation, establishing its own social media accounts.

The squirrel, which was caught on Feb. 5, 2012, was released back into the wild on Feb. 7, 2012. There are several theories as to what caused the squirrel's strange coloring, including local hydraulic fracking and chewing on pens.

2008 Sighting
Another account of a purple squirrel (later named Pete) was recorded at the Meoncross School in Stubbington, Hampshire in the U.K..

The squirrel is reported to originally be blue, its coat eventually shifting to purple. One theory posited was that since the squirrel had a tendency to prowl a building with old photo copiers, the squirrel simply got into the old toner cartridges.

However, most who saw the squirrel firsthand discount this theory.

1997 Sighting
Another purple squirrel was spotted in 1997, however, no theories on its unique coloring were presented.
