A family brought in a 6 week old male squirrel they named Sid and raised for 5 weeks. The family took great care of him as he was in very good condition. They asked us to please take him as they wanted him released in a better environment which they could not provide. When they are ready to release, we normally place the cage in an area with food where we can leave the door open and he can come in and out as he pleases and then when he feels confident he does not return. This is called a soft release. He is still doing well and look forward to the day he can run free as a squirrel should.
