Lucy Gets Curtailed

Sometimes squirrels lose the tip of their tail (or sometimes the whole tail entirely).

Most squirrels recover without any ill effects.

The most common causes for tail loss are fights with other squirrels or having their tail run over by a car.

This spring Lucy somehow lost the last inch of her tail.

You can see the raw wound in this picture here.
