WASHINGTON — A baby squirrel fell 75 feet from a tree and is recuperating — with an over-sized cast — at D.C.’s City Wildlife.
The baby squirrel landed on a sidewalk and broke her ankle. City Wildlife caretakers are helping her recover and say she should heal quickly, according to a tweet from the organization.
