Sometimes the smallest souls leave the biggest mark.
Nebraska’s Omaha Police Department is mourning the loss of a furry friend, OPD Squirrel. According to The Dodo, OPD Squirrel was an acorn enthusiast who also had a taste for justice. The animal was a frequent visitor to the police department’s parking lot, where she quickly made friends with the officers.
The boys in blue became so smitten with the squirrel, they set up a Twitter account for the rodent, so Omaha citizens could keep tabs on the tiny crime fighter.
OPD Squirrel was found dead in the parking lot that she loved so much. Upon finding their comrade, the police officers set up a tiny crime scene and paid their respects.
While the yellow tape suggests foul play, the OPD is unsure of the cause of death and says it will not be pursuing an investigation. Instead, officers have chosen to remember OPD Squirrel as the vibrant, hungry cutie they first fell in love with.
