U.K. Police Officers Reunite Newborn Squirrel With Mom

A Hackney, England, police officer in northeast London was out on patrol when he spotted a newborn, furless squirrel from the sidewalk. “Not what you normally find on burglary patrols,” the Hackney Police said in a Twitter post last week with photos of the officer wearing gloves and rescuing the baby. Police believe the baby’s mom dropped it as she carried it to a new nest, and “safely reunited it with its mother,” the Tweet said. The department didn’t reveal how it tracked the mom down. — See more photos at the Huffington Post
