Resident Steve Spivak rescued a young gray squirrel from his driveway off Nod Road. Spivak said he was on his way home around 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8, when he spotted what he thought was a clump of snow lying in his driveway. Looking again in his rearview mirror, he realized it was actually a young squirrel — injured, but still alive.
“I backed up the car and he didn’t move, so I got a blanket and a reusable shopping bag and picked him up,” Spivak told The Press. “I then brought him into my house and checked him out. Seeing that his nose was bloody and injured, I cleaned it with a Q-tip and Neosporin. He was so calm, letting me pet his head. My wife and kids came into the kitchen to check him out, and of course we all fell in love with him.”
