Rafters With a Heart of Gold Rescue Drowning Ground Squirrel

I never get tired of animal rescue stories such as this freezing baby squirrel that was nursed back to life. These small animals need all the help they can get when they get into dangerous situations.

When a group of river rafters noticed something in the water, they got closer and noticed a drowning squirrel struggling to stay afloat. After picking it up, their kind heart helped this beautiful little squirrel regain its strength and get back safely to its home.

Rafters rescued a drowning squirrel. It was tired and found shivering from being in the frigid water.
