A couple was spending some of their time in Timbavati Picnic Site in Kruger National Park, South Africa when suddenly they started hearing a strange noise coming from one of the trees. At first they assumed it to be a bird’s call, but upon a closer look, they saw that it was a little baby squirrel. This baby was too young to open his eyes and hanging from its neck by a thorn.
The mother wasn’t anywhere to be found. So this kind hearted couple, Anton and Elize Olivier decided to rescue the injured baby themselves. They estimated him to be around two weeks of age, so his chances of surviving alone in the wild were pretty thin. The baby squirrel is named Thorn and he is doing well in the capable hands of Elize and Anton Olivier in Letaba.
