A little girl in my neighborhood found this baby squirrel on the ground, and she was so excited to show us. The unfortunate critter didn't even have his/her eyes opened yet, and we suspected that it was only a day or two old.
Vulnerable Baby Squirrel
Though it was not a pretty sign to see, I felt bad for the baby squirrel! He/she was so vulnerable and its life depended on the nurturing and caring of a human now. This little girl said she will take it home and raised it.
