A SQUIRREL STORY

June 12, 2010 | By paige s. | 1 comment

EVER HEARD OF A SQUIRREL STUCK IN A TREE? ME EITHER UNTIL I WAS WALKING IN MY YARD AND I JUST HAPPENED TO LOOK UP A TREE AND I SAW A SQUIRREL, HIS HEAD WAS STUCK IN A SMALL HOLE IN THE TREE. I WATCHED FOR A COUPLE MINUTES TO SEE IF IT WOULD GET OUT AND I REALIZED THAT HE HAD NO HOPE BY HIMSELF, HE SEEMED KINDA WEAK AND THERE WAS NO TELLING HOW LONG IT HAD BEEN THERE. I DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO DO SO I CALLED ANIMAL CONTROL TO COME GET IT OUT AND THEY SAID THAT THEY DIDNT HELP SQUIRRELS! I COMPLAINED TO THE MANAGER BUT HE DIDNT CARE AND I WANTED TO ARGUE FURTHER BUT I REMEMBERED THAT THE POOR THING WAS STILL OUT THERE STRUGGLING SO I HUNG UP ON HIM AND NOTICED CONSTRUCTION GOING ON ACROSS THE STREET AND A BIG LADDER. I BORROWED THEIR LADDER AND GAVE THEM A COUPLE DOLLARS AND EVENTUALLY GOT HIM OUT WITHOUT HARMING HIM. HE WAS OKAY EXCEPT THAT HE PROBLY HAD A CRICK IN HIS NECK AFTERWARDS. HE DIDNT TRY TO FIGHT ME OR ANYTHING BECAUSE HE WAS EXHAUSTED. HE HAD JUST ENOUGH ENERGY TO CRAWL UP THE TREE AND GO HOME. I COVERED ALL THE HOLES IN THE TREES HITH WOOD TO PREVENT THAT AGAIN. BUT I WAS STILL FUMING OVER THE ANIMAL CONTROL NOT HELPING...

I have fortunately never seen a squirrel stuck in a tree. I wish it was easier to get help for wild animals that are in a bad situation like this. I have not had much luck with animal control around here on the couple of occasions when I could have used their help. I am glad you were able to help this poor squirrel.
