Q - I found an injured squirrel – what should I do?

If you have found an injured squirrel it is important that the squirrel's injuries are assessed and treated properly by a professional. It is important to wear gloves when handling as they will try to bite you. The easiest and safest way to contain the squirrel is to trap it in a container and then scoop the squirrel into a box with a towel for transport. Therefore, there is no direct contact with the squirrel and less chance of being bitten.
