When five baby squirrels were found fused together, rescuers were quick to realize that the animals’ situation was serious. As a result, they would have to race against the clock to free the critters – and without causing the squirrels any further harm in the process.
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is a non-profit animal hospital run by the Wisconsin Humane Society. Based in the city of Milwaukee, the center rehabilitates thousands of ill or wounded animals each year. And when these creatures are better, the staff at the center release as many of the animals as possible back into the wild.
