Rescue Me ID: 14-10-28-00643grey squirrel (male)

Wildlife    Age: Adult


    I found an injured baby grey squirrel 7 years ago. His head was turned at an odd angle and he could only spin in circles. I tried to call Div of wildlife but received no return calls. I did finally contact someone from Div of Wildlife, but she couldn't give me any useful info. I have been taking care of him myself. A few years ago I finally heard about the rehab centers and found out I wasn't supposed to have a wild animal. I was attached to him by then and he was happy but he has balance issues and possible vision issues. He has also been living in a household with cats. He has no idea of what a predator is and so I can't turn him loose. I ... (Read More)am going to have to move and and obviously can't take him with me. If I didn't have to move I would continue to care for him myself. I don't believe he will ever be able to live in the wild. He still has balance issues. Example: if he has an itch, he lays on his side while scratching so he doesn't fall over. He prefers to lay down on his stomach while eating so he doesn't have to try to hold his balance. He loves belly rubs and likes to play tuggy. He loves to be brushed. He is not friendly towards all people.He is not fond of strangers that visit, especially men. My son built him a cage 4' X4' X8'. This is 'his space'. He has a 'sleepy' tent that hangs from the top and there are many tree branches firmly attached inside. He loves hickory nuts from the shagbark hickory, natural almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, in that order. He spends about 5 hours a day running loose in the house 3 or 4 days a week. (Less)

PIease Read Before Rehabilitating or Rescuing Wildlife in Ohio
    Wildlife rescue work in Ohio can be rewarding if this work matches your IifestyIe. Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation serves an important function in alleviating the suffering of injured or displaced animals, as well as maintaining the balance of ecosystems and protecting human members of the community. There are many reasons an animal may need to be rescued. One reason is that as communities develop and expand, wild animals lose their habitats to new buildings and roads. Once the animals are displaced, there are often conflicts between animals and humans. For instance, animals may nest and reproduce in the crawl space, basement, attic, or chimney of a home. Wild animals may have conflicts with domestic pets. Natural predators such as wild cats may be dangerous. Wild animals may turn over trash or damage property. These conflicts may unfortunately diminish urban and suburban appreciation for wildlife. However, animals are deserving of life, respect, and appropriate care. Disrupting the natural habitat of a given species can have far-reaching consequences to the entire ecosystem.

    Some common types of wildlife that may need rescue or rehabilitation are squirrels, raccoons, and skunks. A squirrel is often considered a nuisance, but many people like squirrels because of their cute appearance and often entertaining behavior. A captive squirrel can be trained nearly as well as dogs. Wild squirrels thrive in many environments and can serve as a necessary part of the food chain for certain predators. Raccoons are very interesting and intelligent creatures that are rejected by some people and loved by others. Skunks are often maligned for the scent they can produce, but skunks only spray as a last resort when extensively provoked. All forms of wildlife are important to the balance of their ecosystems. Wildlife in need of rescue has the best chance of survival with a professional Wildlife Rehabilitator. Baby animals should be carefully picked up with a cloth and placed in a cloth-lined box with a lid that has holes in it and carefully transported to the nearest Wildlife Rehabilitator. Resources exist in most communities for caring for adult wildlife.

    There is an increasing need for wildlife rescue and rehabilitation due to continuing urban and suburban development. Many pieces of Native American folklore center on raccoons. The 1931 edition of The Joy of Cooking included recipes for Raccoon and Squirrel.
