An Orange Ball of... Squirrel?

Residents of Baker County, Florida in the United States reported seeing "A large ball of orange fur" in and around a state park. Officials received so many reports that they began an official investigation which led to them saying it is most likely... a squirrel!

Orange phase fox squirrels can grow to be two-feet tall and can climb trees. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission laid a trap of doughnuts, and the beast took the bait. According to officials, this discounts the possibility of the creature being an orangutan, as many had previously suspected.

One official noted that, though he "is not discounting anything," the eating habits of the "orange ball of fur" simply do not match those of an orangutan.
