Squirrel: Episode III

Well, the squirrel was released last Thursday, thus bringing the saga to an end, at least as far as I'm concerned. For all I know, he has a few years left of being a squirrel.

My friend Threse, who volunteers at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota and was nice enough to coordinate his release with me, took this photo of the squirrel shortly before his release. 

Looks way healthier than when I saw him a month ago. 

Here's video of the release. Anna got to watch. Liam was taking a nap. 

So yeah, I'm thinking of donating and/or volunteering at the WRC at some point in the near future. Seems like a place full of hope.

Nice job on the video, Al! There's an online application for volunteer opportunities at the WRC web site. They're "hiring" for the nursery season even as I type. I highly recommend mammal nursery as a great place to start, because there's no vaccine requirement & feeding baby squirrels is wondrous awesome.

Kudos to all of you for helping the squirrel. The world needs more people like that! :)
