Baby Squirrels Rescued from Chimney (VIDEO)

Baby Squirrels Rescued from Chimney (VIDEO)

A mother squirrel thought she was providing excellent care for her three babies by building a nest on top of a chimney where they would be warm. She certainly didn’t count on the nest falling into the chimney. 

The lady of the house heard noises in the wall near her furnace and called wildlife control officers. When they opened up the wall and then the pipe, they found three adorable baby squirrels. Their mother was pacing on the rooftop, not knowing how to save her pups.

Getting the babies out of the chimney pipe was a lot more complicated than you might imagine. Watch the video and see how it was done.

I sure would like to know if the reunion was succesful and if not what happened to the babies. Wonderful video but follow up needed.

Hurray! All efforts to save these babies came from a place of compassion and caring. To that (thus far) 1% who say it wasn't worth the might want to try looking around to see if you're able to find the piece of your soul that's obviously gone missing.

I too would've liked to have seen the reunion, but I thank every individual who did the right thing by caring and protecting these precious voiceless innocents.
