A Boy and His Squirrel (video)

Meet Sportacus the happy squirrel. He was saved as a baby when a tree cutting crew cut down his home.

His savior is a woman who cares for orphan squirrels and then sets them free to live in the wild the way nature intended. But Sportacus bonded with his new family. And he loves his home, showing up every night to sleep in his box. Will he be willing to give it up and go free?

Watch and see.

This is just so wonderful so touching!! Squirrels can live with humans all this wild crud is man made not reality as we can see. Some people think there is always only one way but for me there is not there are many ways. Do what comes natural not what society brainwashes you to think!! xoxo Squirrels

I love squirrels. The last place I worked at had a huge porch, and I used to sit outside and watch the ones and gray ones...and they would come and get the snacks I offered. I miss that.
