Squirrel tales

"Here you can see that as they became unraveled the squirrels were also waking up. A few were given an anesthetic mask (bottom left) as they woke up so quickly." — at Animal Clinic of Regina.

Regina clinic frees six tail-tied squirrels

June 12, 2013

Employees at the Animal Clinic of Regina rescued a collection of young squirrels after their tails had become severely twisted and tangled together. Luckily for the squirrels, city workers had brought them to the animal clinic where the wonderful veterinarians were able to set them free. The squirrels were anesthetized for the procedure and after a few days of monitoring, the little guys were released back into the wild. Photos courtesy of Animal Clinic of Regina Facebook page.
