As someone who works regularly with squirrels in a rehabilitation setting, I would not be surprised if this story were partly true (though most likely exaggerated, lol). Helpless as anything when babies...but as adults they are quite the screaming handfull.
I just got my livejournal account...I don't remember how I found you, I think maybe a friend linked me to one of your posts awhile back. I can't remember which one it was, but you've kept me laughing every time. Hope you don't mind me returning to see what absurdity you experience next ;) Just thought I'd say hi.
