Video: Baby Squirrels Rescued from Car Engine

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington recently rescued a group of newborn baby squirrels from the engine compartment of a car, and the encounter was caught on video.

The AWLA posted the video on YouTube and wrote about it today on the organization’s Facebook page.

“When an Arlington resident took his car in for an inspection, the mechanic noticed a squirrel’s nest under the hood,” the AWLA said. “The mother squirrel had chewed through wires, cables and the container of windshield wiper fluid.”

“The squirrels were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator to be cared for until they are old enough to be released,” the organization noted.
