Squirrels. They’re entertaining when they’re leaping, climbing and jumping from tree to tree. We’re intrigued by their inquisitiveness and expressive faces and think it’s cute the way they hold tidbits of food in their tiny paws and eat so daintily.
Many people set up squirrel feeding stations in their back yards and watch as they enjoy their snacks. Folks may even give them names and talk to them as they approach the feeders feeling as though they’re family pets.
Unfortunately, people tend to forget that squirrels are wild and potentially dangerous. They’re not domestic pets and should never be approached with that assumption. While they may come up close and seem as though they’re not afraid, this can result in trusting a wild critter when you shouldn’t.
Animals in the wild should be treated as such by being responsible, careful, and safe while in their natural habitat. Attempting to pet or hold a squirrel is dangerous and should be avoided. Hand feeding is also something you never want to attempt. It only takes one skittish or aggressive squirrel to leap and attack. Our NYC squirrel removal is your best solution, especially if children are at risk.
