A dedicated animal lover from Barrhead named Jannet discovered a squirrel who was unable to eat food normally because of extremely large and bent teeth. Jannet made the decision to assist the animal because he appeared to be too thin and had a slim chance of living for too long.
We absolutely adore animals, so we’re thrilled to present yet another tale about an unusual creature and his happy ending. If you missed it, the bonus at the end of the story will demonstrate just how adorable squirrels can be.
When Jannet looked more closely, she could see that the squirrel’s enlarged teeth were curving backward and preventing it from chewing normally. In theory, nuts and tree bark should grind down a squirrel’s teeth, but that didn’t happen in this particular situation. The unfortunate man clearly needed assistance, so Jannet made the decision to assist him.
She brought Bucky the squirrel home with her. The woman discovered that the lengthening of the incisors was being caused by an improper bite. She then watched several YouTube tutorials to understand how to cut a squirrel’s teeth.
Jannet clipped the squirrel’s incisors with a common cuticle trimmer. Bucky maintained his composure during the process, possibly believing that whatever was taking place was for the best.
When all was said and done, Jannet let Bucky go and was pleased to see that he could consume whole peanuts. She was also pleased to watch the squirrel honing his teeth on a tree because that is how it ought to be.
Bonus: Although Jannet isn’t in these pictures, we still thought they were worth sharing to demonstrate how adorable squirrels can be.
