CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — A rare squirrel and minor celebrity on the University of Illinois campus has died.

Pinto Bean, as the squirrel was affectionately called by students, was found by a student over the weekend dead, apparently run over by a car. News of the squirrel’s death spread on the UIUC subreddit, with many sharing photos or videos they had and eulogizing the squirrel.

“Hope you’re getting the best acorns in the afterlife buddy,” one Redditor wrote.

Pinto Bean was a standout among other campus squirrels because of the color of its fur. Due to a rare genetic mutation, Pinto Bean was a piebald squirrel, which meant it had patches of white fur amidst the usual gray-colored fir.

Another Redditor said they retrieved Pinto Bean’s remains and is looking to preserve the squirrel through taxidermy.
