My Poor Baby Squirrel!
I have been feeding the birds and squirrels in my backyard for many years now and last summer one of the squirrels had babies and they were so tame I was able to hand feed them. They wait at my backdoor every morning for their seeds and I have developed quite a realtionship with them! I opened my backdoor this morning to discover one of my 'babies' was badly hurt! He is missing his entire tail and his ears are all shredded. He just sat there staring at me and I am heart broken! He is able to walk and did eat his breakfast but I have no idea how he was injured. I don't know how to help him, I am a little nervous to try to touch him as injured animals sometimes bite. Does anyone have some advice? I really don't know what to do. :(
