squirrel bite

Yesterday Skye caught a tree squirrel. It's not often that this happens despite the fact that we have a few families living in our big oak trees.

The squirrel escaped from her mouth by bitting her chin. It was bleeding so much that she had blood on her chest and feet (left picture). Luckily it healed quickly and we could only see a scar by the next day (right picture).

It ended up well this time, but this kind of incident reminds me how powerless we are if something worse would happen. We were not able to do anything more than taking a picture of the wound, she doesn't let us touch her and even less clean her wound. I guess we could sedate her, but it seems too much for a small wound and probably too slow for a big emergency.
