Deserted Red Squirrels

cookie8June 2, 2011

Yesterday, there was major squawking going on in my garden and there was a baby squirrel clinging to a shrub. He seemed a decent size, big feet and ears but a smallish body he needs to grow into. We have a birdhouse about 8 feet up so I'm guessing he fell out. We put him in a bucket for a bit and then his sibling fell out. Both were put back but I don't think there is a mother there. We put some peanut butter on the entrance and they ate it. Now what? Any suggestions? I use to see the mother scampering up the pole but haven't for days now.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Aw :(
Maybe the mother died.I don't know maybe you could call an wildlife animal rescue and they will take them.
