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.
