    The info i gave might have been too vague. From what I see i believe that it shouldn't be classified as a baby it looks to be around 8-10 weeks old. It seems to be injured in one of its front legs. I haven't been able to capture it yet cause it hides under cars.

    Do you have a picture of the baby?

    Do you think you can trap it with like a blanket or something and think fleece or cotton t-shirt before like a towel.

    Or a have a heart cage?

    Or another member, suggested bribing it with food?

    Just keep refreshing your screen ok!

    I tried bribing it with food which didn't work, I was able to get it to drink some water though. I tried to trap it with a towel but it was struggling so hard i thought it might get hurt. I will try to get a picture of it. It seems to be hurt in general, not quite sure what the exact injury is though. It has a sibling which is on a tree in front of my house and this one seems unable to climb the tree because it hangs around the base of it.

    OK, so are you going to get the picture now? I will wait if you want me to? What do you think is wrong with the leg, can you see it? If you capture, do you have a box with a lid with holes in it.

    Don't forget to refresh your screen, ok.

    When getting ready to trap please be prepared with some kind of a fleece or tshirt to keep warm until you can get to the rehabber.

    Always think:

    WARM, DARK, QUIET

    You can also make a "rice buddy" will explain later, OK.

    Do NOT try to feed the squirrel, the squirrel should be kept warm, especially if injured.

    Make sure you have a box or a cat carrier or something like that? Do you have something like that?

    Another member suggested that although the squirrel would fit, it would not be the best, to confined. It should be something like a cat carrier, do you have something like that?

    Well a xerox box would only be very Short term, he/she could chew their way through it.

    I was only asking about the park, because we have another member in Queens and thought she could help, but she's not online anyway.

    It is getting dark now, do you see the squirrel anymore? Or a general idea of where he/she may have went?
