The New York Times ran a story about a baby squirrel that has been spotted several times on East 7 Street in New York (Baby Squirrel Starving on Seventh Street)
We sure hope the baby squirrel isn’t starving as the headline suggests, but despite the animal’s plight, the story is heartwarming in that it shows how residents and shopkeepers took notice and are concerned about the animal.
One local resident went so far as to contact the newspaper and to put up a posters which read:
Orphaned Baby Squirrel on East 7 Street
If seen or caught, please notify federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator immediately

Baby squirrel must be cared for by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. It is too young to crack open nutshells.
