This is a Prominent Moth Caterpillar in the genus Heterocampa. Compare your individual to this image on BugGuide. It is a typically green caterpillar, and just prior to metamorphosis, it frequently turns pink. Judging by the unnatural anal discharge, we fear this individual has been traumatized to the point that it will not live to see its winged stage. It appears to have been squished.
