Orphan season is upon us, albeit a little sooner than we had expected. This past Saturday, team five received 2013’s first two infant eastern grey squirrels. With constant heat and five feedings per day, these pups were cared for until they could be transferred to one of our licensed rehabilitators.
While the clinic was appreciative of the opportunity to care for these tiny squirrels, the point must be stressed that under most circumstances, young wildlife thrives best when left with their parents in their natural environment.
