What should I do if I find an orphaned baby squirrel wandering about? There is nothing sadder than an orphan. To read stories like Oliver Twist are very sad because to see a person without a mother can be very heart-wrenching to say the least. It is just not a pleasant thing to see any person without parents.
Seeing an animal without parents is not easy either. It is sad to see a cat or a bird that has lost its parents and has no one to care for it. Most of us love to pick up that stray animal and bring it home, because this just seems like the natural thing to do. It is part of human nature that makes us so unique in comparison to other animals.
The question comes what to do when you see an orphaned squirrel wandering around your yard. Squirrels are wild animals, and can be dangerous. If it was an adult animal you would probably want it off your property as quickly as possible, and might even take drastic measures to keep that squirrel away.
However, this is an orphan and that changes things immensely. You can't see yourself killing the poor thing and, in fact, you don't even want to see it suffer. You want to help it. That is awfully noble, but truthfully you should try to care for this animal on your own. That can be dangerous to you, because the squirrel may be sick or diseased, and that may be the reason that the mother abandoned it. You may actually be putting yourself at risk if you decide to do the humane thing.
This is one of those situations where you need to get the help of professionals. Realistically you are not going to get some wild life preserve or animal control to come out and pick up the orphan and take it away. They are way too busy for that and a squirrel with no parent is not high on their list.
However, if you can capture the squirrel and bring it to then they will care for it and make sure that it has a chance to live and survive. You just have to get it there.
You can capture the orphan but you need to do it carefully. Make sure you are wearing gloves, and don't directly touch it. Use something like a shovel or other object to get it to go into a box. Close the box up and take the squirrel in and it should be ok.
