Gales: scores of baby squirrels brought in for treatment
It’s been a week of stormy weather and this has meant extra work for the animal shelter in the Antwerp municipality of Kapellen. Many more animals than usual were hurt during the gales.
It’s above all nature’s smallest that got injured first. Countless baby squirrels fell from their nests to peril. The animal shelter also had to treat twice as many birds as during the same period last year.
