Nebraska cops mourn dead squirrel

Some cops in Nebraska are mourning the death of a squirrel that frequented their police station's parking lot and had become a mascot of sorts. Now those cops have taken to social media to pay (somewhat sarcastic) tribute to the little animal.

An officer with the Omaha Police Department posted a photo of the squirrel lying dead on the ground with a yellow line drawn around its body. The photo shows a yellow police tape stretched over the scene. The tweet reads: "We are not investigating."

Another tweet shows a cop kneeling as if in prayer near the dead squirrel. Another cop shared photos of the squirrel from happier times.

Apparently, the animal was so popular that someone created a Twitter account for it called @OPDSquirrel.
