Some sadness

Last night, a young squirrel was up in an oak in the back yard. At first, I thought he was stuck between small branches. Then he fell about three feet and hit the ground while trying to skitter away from us. Finally, we realized what was wrong....he couldn't use his back legs. I took some photos of him while he draped himself over a limb. See his little foot hanging there?

Today, we saw him again. I watched (it was so hard) and realized that he drags his right back leg. He ate some corn on the cob that James set out, then climbed away. What a fighter!
