Kayaker Saves Stranded Squirrel

(ANIMAL RESCUE/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEO) Missouri, Illinois, and a handful of other states throughout the South and Midwest have been experiencing an unusual amount of rainfall and extreme flooding as of late. While kayaking down the Meramec River in Missouri to survey the flood damage, resident Tony Weiss came upon a young squirrel clinging to a tree. As he watched, the squirrel tried jumping off the tree, but ended up getting dragged downstream. Weiss paddled up to the animal in-danger and extended his oar to help him onto his kayak, bringing his furry friend back to the safety of the tree. — Global Animal
