Is it safe to handle a squirrel with bare hands? Sadly, shows like the Crocodile Hunter have made people think that they can be some kind of wild adventurer ready to take on wildest animals. They see these television personalities handle animals and make it seem so easy to do so.
The truth is that wild animals are never safe for you to handle with your hands, especially your bare hands. It is a risk that you cannot take, because these animals will bite and scratch and, not only can they injure you in this way, but many carry diseases and can infect you with whatever virus or parasite they have. This is true of the squirrels as well.
It is true that these animals are cute and fuzzy and look like they are harmless, but harmless is not the case at all. These are animals that are concerned for their safety and they see you as a predator. Your intentions may be good. You may want to just hold the squirrel or simply move it out of your home or attic, but they see you as a dangerous predator that will try to eat it. This will cause them to fight to get free.
To do so they will bite and scratch at you, and can cause you to get injured. Your exposed skin is absolutely no match for their claws or teeth you can easily be injured by them. Not wearing gloves will give the squirrel the ability to claw at you and if it bites you may have just put yourself in danger of catching a disease. Surely you do not want this.
The truth of the matter is that you should not handle any animal without heavy duty gloves on. It does not matter what you see on television, these are trained professionals who have years and years of experience in dealing with wild animals. They know exactly how to handle these animals without getting injured. Just because you have watched does not mean that you know. You simply cannot risk this. You have to be careful.
If you are forced to handle a wild animal, then you always want to ensure that you are wearing gloves. The preferred ones to wear should be leather, and you need to make sure that you have the strength to handle one of these animals. They will be squirming to try to get away, and so the amount of time you need to hold them should be no more than a few seconds before you have moved them to some carrier to transport.
