Oh how we love baby animals. Especially cute baby animals. Especially cute baby animals that have been rescued
and are noshing on a bottle of milk

This is the time of year when we'll start seeing more abandoned or hurt baby animals. If you spot an animal in distress, do not attempt to rescue it yourself; instead, call your local wildlife rescue organization. Some animals may seem like they're in distress but are actually using a defense mechanism that we misinterpret as an injury. In addition, wildlife could be carrying pests or diseases, so only a trained rescue worker should handle them.

Wildlife rescuers get all the fun, including bottle-feeding itty-bitty baby squirrels.
