Poor little guy.. :(

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Around 8:30pm.. my youngest sister came running in the house saying that she just saw a squirrel get hit by a car, and it was passed out in our yard.

So I ran out to see if it was still alive, and sure enough, she was dragging her back legs behind her, trying to get away. I ran inside and got a cat carrier and gently guided her inside, threw a towel over it and ran inside to make some calls.

I first called the Humane Society.. they were busy the first 5 times.. so I gave up with them. I looked online for a few minutes, trying to find a wildlife rescue, before I gave up and called an emergency vet, seeing if they would see her. Even planning on paying for it.

They asked me to go and see if I could see any open wounds on her body.. I opened the carrier and lifted her out gently with the towel, and tried to see.. she had an open wound on her right side.. probably a few broken ribs, along with both back legs broken.. but then she died, right there in my hands.

She wasn't very big (And yes, I checked to see whether it was male or female) so she was probably from this springs litters. Black.. fur was really soft.

So I dug a small hole and buried her in the ravine in my backyard.

Poor girlie. I wish people would slow down for the poor things.. we don't even live on a busy street.

So rest in peace, little pretty Squirrel.

PS, didn't think this belonged in the Crossing the Bridge forum. But if it does, I'm sorry.

Poor little squirrel, I too have a soft spot for all animals, sadly not all people feel the same way.

Aw, I'm so sorry. I don't know how many times I've slammed on brakes or swerved to miss one of those little sweeties, and had rubber knees for the next hour. Poor babe.

bless your heart for loving her the last minutes of her passing to the bridge. I wish people would care about these little creatures like we do.

poor sweet thing. What a tragic end for her Thankyou for caring for her in her last moments with us.

With deep respect I will move this to the bridge forum. All animals deserve this final tribute so that we can all honour them

RIP sweet thing - enjoy the rainbow bridge darling

I agree. I feel bad when I hear people say "It's just a squirrel."

Have fun at the Rainbow Bridge..

I'm glad she was young and didn't have any babies.

When we lived out in the country, a stray dog had attacked a female squirrel.. and when I found her, I saw that she had been nursing babies recently.. and I looked all over for them.. but I couldn't find them anywhere.. poor little things starved to death somewhere.

And yeah.. we are JUST a human.. that doesn't mean people go around running people over and not giving it a second thought. :\\

I love squirrels. I want one as a pet but was told no ):

RIP little girly!

There really ought to be domestic squirrels... they would make very nice pets, I think, maybe a little like a cross between a hamster and a ferret...

RIP squirrel.

You did the right thing.

Enjoy your time and play at the bridge, little girl squirrel.
