Last month I had a traffic accident. As I came up over the brow of the hill, I saw a squirrel in the middle of the road. I braked and swerved the opposite way to him but he ran at me and under the side of my car. There was nothing else I could do, I felt a bump. I couldn’t just leave him there so got out to see and he had passed away immediately. I got some branches, picked him up and placed him in an indent in the grass at the edge of the road and covered him over.
I couldn’t stop thinking about the poor little squirrel all day, especially that night when he should have been curled up in his drey.
I couldn’t make it up to that squirrel but I wanted to do something so got some squirrel food and headed out to the local park to provide some of the local squirrels with breakfast!
