This is a real headline. In The Washington Post.
A person called Animal Control about an injured squirrel on the sidewalk.
An Animal Control officer tried to examine the squirrel, but it jumped up and ran up a tree. The officer said the squirrel was probably not seriously injured. Another squirrel was spotted on the sidewalk nearby, and it did not move when the officer approached.
It was taken to the Animal Welfare League for examination, but upon arrival, the squirrel became alert and resisted attempts to be handled.(read the story on TWP website here)
And this is news in our nation's capital. Thank you to the intrepid journalists of The Washington Post for sharing that revealing expose on the medical habits of squirrels. Perhaps they were uninsured??
