Hand Rearing Squirrels

Posted by Jon in News, Wild Mammals on Sunday 23/08/2009 18:44 UTC.

On 20 August we had three very young squirrels delivered to us, these were found by a member of the public that had disturbed them whilst cleaning a chimney. Unfortunately the mother left her three babies and was too frightened to return.

We are now hand rearing all three, this is very time consuming, feeding them every 3 hours and then mimicking all the natural motherly actions, like teaching them to go to the toilet after feeding.
