My middle daughter Megan used to be the one who would bring home stray animals, dead or alive. The dead one I remember the most was a baby rabbit, she didn't know it was dead, she was only 4 at the time, and no I didn't get out the video camera.

That’s exactly what two dumbfounded parents did in this video, in which their adorable little daughter decided to befriend a squirrel killed moments earlier by the family greyhound.

Which would be kind of cute, we guess, if it were, you know, actually alive.

After a few minutes of filming, the father finally got in touch with his parenting skills and decided it was time to say goodbye to the dead squirrel.

“We gotta take a bath now,” he said.
