Sucked-up Squirrels

These 4 week old grey squirrels were vacuumed up when a homeowner was doing his spring cleaning. The squirrel nest of leaves and other yard debris was made in the rafters of a shed. During spring cleaning the homeowner used a shop vac to suck up the leaves and heard the thump, thump, thump. Opening the vacuum canister he found these three baby grey squirrels. Luckily there were no injuries beyond one having a bump on the head. They were successfully raised and released. They have settled in more appropriate housing in a squirrel nest box up in an oak tree.
