  • Yea another person added this on here yesterday and at the 1:30 mark the little girl was nodding its head the answer her dad when he asked her i she was ready to take a bath. My brother almost puked watching that! Its very disturbing but it was funny. I wouldn't even let my kids near road kill.

  • All I can think is, why did they get the camera? I don't think it's that big of a deal, it's just unnerving to me that the parents are so willing to video it and pretend like it's bothering them when it's obviously not. I would be more worried about the child then the video camera, and try to explain that the squirrel has passed and we need to bury him.

  • it's kinda like that monkey raping the frog. the family that taped it, at the zoo, were laughing. i was disgusted by it. i thought it should've been stopped by the zoo keeper. ugh, what is wrong with people!! poor frog.

  • Squirrels carry rabies and tick fever, both can be very harmful to humans! That's the first thought that comes to my mind.

  • I think that the innocence of the little girl was sweet. She didn't really understand what dead meant. We giggled through the whole video. She was being respectful of it and not treating it badly. I don't think I would let my child play eith a dead animal, but to each their own.

  • My first issue would be the germs and disease it could be carrying. I wouldn't even have let let my son poke it, lol! I think it's morbid and gross, but I can't help but think the little girl and how she said "squail" was cute, lol.
