I don't have a picture, but I had to perform a little "rescue" mission yesterday morning. I was driving back from the grocery store and saw a brown squirrel at the corner of my street and the one I was on. It did not move when I drove past it, but was clearly alive.
I got to the house (about 200 metres away), brought the groceries in and went looking for a box and a pair of gloves. I found them pretty fast and ran back to the squirrel. It took a little coaxing, but I managed to get it into the box and close the lid.
We brought to the after hours emergency animal clinic. The girl there said they would heal it and let recover as long as needed. Then it would be released, either by itself, or with other squirrels, if they had others and if it had integrated with them.
When I picked it up, there was a little bit of blood on the ground and I could see that the skin on the back of it's right paw looked as if it was gone. It's hard to say what happened to it. I would guess that if it was hit by a car, it would have been more severely injured. Maybe it was just grazed by a car tire?
I'll call there today, to see how it's doing.

One Hungry Little Mouse!
The extraordinary scene was captured by photography student
Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire.
The 19-year-old, from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, who was
Photographing the leopard for a course project, was astounded
By the mouse's Behaviour.

He said: 'I have no idea where the mouse came from - he
Just appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had
Dropped in the meat for the leopard.

'He didn't take any notice of the leopard, just went straight
Over to the meat and started feeding himself.

'But the leopard was pretty surprised - she bent down and
Sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared.

'In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing
Had happened..

.but even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from
Getting his fill...
'It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat
Into the enclosure was shocked - he said he'd never seen
Anything like it before.'

Project owner Jackie James added: 'It was so funny to see
- Sheena batted the mouse a couple of times to try to get
It away from her food.

'But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried
On.' Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard
Project from a UK zoo when she was just four months old.

She is one of 14 big cats in the private collection started by
Jackie 's late husband Peter in 1989.

The African Leopard can be found in the continent's forests,
Grasslands, savannas, and rainforests.

....so the mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch and show the leopard who was the boss.
Just proves no one can push you around without your permission.

Looks more like a rat, doesn't it?

Still astonishing, though but.
