    Lightbulb Injured squirrel outside my window

    I live on the 4th floor in NYC and there has been a squirrel sleeping on my window sill all night. We must have scared him a bit looking so he did get up and run into the fire escape. His arm appears to be injured. I called 311 and they said they don't help with squirrels. I don't know how or if I should help, but I'm an animal lover and hate to see them suffering. This window overlooks a courtyard between buildings (just cement, no trees) and I honestly don't know how he got inside, I'm sure there is a way to get in and out but not one anyone uses regularly. The squirrel is plump and looks well fed. Any ideas how to help the squirrel or who to call?

    Oh poor baby.
    Thank you for watching out for him.
    Where in NYC are you located?
    The owner of the board (island rehabber) is from the Bronx
    and may be able to find help if we know your location.

    I thought he had left, but looks like he went up to the window ledge above me. I tried calling a few of the numbers, no answer or disconnected numbers. I'll try some emails.

    Reach out to the rehabber that island rehabber mentioned.
    I will pm you island rehabber's real name, and tell Charles that she highly recommended him.

    Perfect. Perhaps send another email and tell him that you forgot to mention the person
    who recommended him.
