Baby squirrel falls from tree, wears little red cast, gets help from City Wildlife rehab center

WASHINGTON DC - A tiny squirrel is recovering with the help of veterinarians and a little red cast after falling 75 feet.

According to ABC News, the baby squirrel, who is only six and a half weeks old, fell onto the sidewalk from her nest in a Washington D.C. tree.

She was taken to City Wildlife, an animal rehabilitation center in the area to be treated for a bloody nose and broken tooth and ankle.

A cast was put on the squirrel's leg and is checked every few days to make sure it heals correctly.

She is expected to make a full recovery and is reportedly doing well.

The rehabilitation center, according to their website, is a nonprofit group dedicated to helping injured and orphaned animals. They can treat 1,200 animals annually.
