This sweet baby squirrel took a hard, 75 foot fall from her nest and sustained a major injury to her hind leg. But have no fear! The terrific team at City Wildlife, the only wildlife rehabilitation center in Washington, D.C., took great care of the injured squirrel, fitting her with a teeny tiny red cast.

The folks at City Wildlife believe that their efforts will lead to a full recovery. They took to their Facebook page to explain what happened and the prognosis. They wrote, “This baby squirrel was brought into City Wildlife after she fell 75 feet from her nest on to the concrete sidewalk below. She suffered a bloody nose, a broken tooth, and a broken ankle. Luckily, just like children, this squirrel is young enough that her ankle should heal very quickly. Send her your well wishes on a speedy recovery!”

This isn’t the first heroic rescue effort by City Wildlife. This winter, they rescued a snowy owl who had been hit by a bus in the D.C. area. Thanks to their efforts, the owl is doing well and received feather transplants to help the mending process.

Send your prayers and well wishes to this adorable creature so that she makes a full and fast recovery.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
