Doesnt want to be released? A couple weeks ago a boy in the neighborhood brought me 3 squirrels. They were very malnurished and dehydrated. He said the mother squirrel got killed by their cat and then he found the babies in his house's roof calling for her. She never came back though and he didn't know what to do with them. So he brought them to me. I'm about the only person in our neighborhood that has any other pets other then dogs or cats. So I guess it was a natural decision to pick me to bring them too. It was a good choice in my opinion. I use to live on Fort Mountain Wildlife Park in Georgia. For 16 years I lived there, helping raise and rehabilitate orphaned and injured animals then released them. But today I'm faced with something I'm not sure how to deal with. No I don't mean how to take care of squirrels - I know how to do that. The problem is releasing one of them. 2 out of the 3 were released this week. But the 3rd just won't allow us to release it. When her siblings took off up the tree, well aware that they didn't want anything to do with me (cause I avoided contact with them the whole time as much as possible) she just would not leave. I put her on the tree and turned around to walk away and she jumped off onto my back. Ok so I tried again, Setting her down on the ground and darting off. She ran after me and when I stopped she made it up my leg and onto my shoulder then burrowed herself in my shirt through the collar , making herself cozy in my bra. Am I suppose to just keep her? I don't know what to do. I've never been faced with a wild animal that doesn't want to be wild.
