Baby Squirrels Rescued After Tails Got Tangled Together.

After successfully separating the squirrel siblings, the center’s staff had grown more concerned.

The entanglement had caused various types of tissue damage brought on by the lack of circulation. Only time would tell if the squirrels would make a full recovery. Fortunately, the staff had detangled other squirrels before, but never this many in this predicament.

The squirrel siblings continued to recover and the staff was happy to see that they were very active.

They ate the seeds and fruits that were offered to them. And they did a great job running, jumping, and climbing in their outdoor habitat. Of course, some of them wound up losing some fur on their tail, but the staff is confident that the fur will grow back in time.

It’s not the first time that Diehl and the Wisconsin Humane Society staff saved the lives of animals.

They’ve helped other tiny creatures like these baby turtles. After finding some Painted Turtle eggs, the staff incubated them and waited for them to hatch. Once the turtles had used up their yolk sacs as sustenance, the staff released the turtles into their natural habitat.

There are no creatures big or small that the Wisconsin Humane Society isn’t willing to lend a hand to.

Even a wise old owl is capable of getting into trouble, especially when he got tangled up in a fishing line. Thankfully, the shelter was able to untangle this Great Horned Owl, and after making sure it was okay, they released it so it could find its own path.

Mange is a horrible skin disease caused by parasitic mites, and they often affect mammals like this fox.

This is Ripley, a young Red Fox. Things looked grim for the creature because his condition caused itching, rashes, scabs, lesions, and hair loss. But after the Wisconsin Humane Society treated him, he was released into the wild mange-free!

The Wisconsin Humane Society has five shelters in Milwaukee, Saukville, Racine, Green Bay, and Sturgeon Bay. Not to mention a spay/neuter clinic in West Allis. But they need help. So, if you adore animals as much as they do, then visit here and help them by donating. You'll be saving countless furry lives.
