This was a squirrel the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources confiscated from someone and brought to Wild Friends here at the Sanctuary. He was a bit rubenesque. He actually could not climb up a 6" ramp without getting winded. He arrived in a cage with a ton of junk food - getting him to eat healthier food was a process and was met with great suspicion on his part.

But he's on the way to a healthier trimmer physique under the care of the Sanctuary's licensed wildlife rehabilitators.

Here he is already fitter and able to scamper up the originally troublesome ramp.
