I have been seeing a mangy-looking squirrel in my yard and am concerned. He seems to have lost most of his fur, his eyes are swollen, and he just looks sick. I feel sorry for the poor guy, but I'm wondering if he could be leaving pathogens behind that could affect me or other wildlife. Should I be concerned? Should I do something?
Please contact Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to see what protocol to follow.
