gray squirrel behavior

Asked May 6, 2016, 1:00 PM EDT

We had 8 squirrels in our fenced in yard enjoying peanuts and bird food. The mother was run over a week ago, and none of the babies have returned. Where are they? What can we do to bring them back.

The juvenile squirrels may still been living in the same nest, but once they are fully furred they usually leave. If you can identify their nest you may be able to see if they are nearby. It is more likely that they are no longer staying together and that you may see them occasionally as individuals.

Thank you very much for taking the time for this service
