The note was apparently written by kids who found the squirrel and buried him under a pile of leaves on Green's property. "I had to go and check straight away and there it was, with a scrap of paper with 'RIP' on it covered in large leaves picked out of our front garden," Green told The Dodo.
Definitely not something you expect to come home to.
Facebook commenters and Green himself were a bit suspicious of the note, signed simply "School Children." "We do get kids walking down our road to the local school," Green said.
Honestly, I think it makes sense from a kid's perspective. When kids don't know how to handle something, they do the best they can and then let an adult know, who can fix it if need be.
