    Nice ride :-) Have a nice day Christophe!

  • Hi @azfoto - That's one of them and I usually have her when the weather forecast isn't the best one (easier to clean up as it's a single speed). II hope you had a great day yesterday and today. Wishing a wonderful Wednesday too! :)

*Feel Good Monday* ☺️🐿️ While walking around the neighbourhood I noticed a squirrel climbing up the side of a walking. It was clear that he was struggling keeping a grip and much to my terror the next thing I know he's falling to the ground from a height of roughly 15ft. 😔
Seeing what just happened I went near the little one, giving him some space to hopefully recover and also to ensure that no dogs would get him (yes, the off-leash problem still carries on 💩) After a few minutes recovering from the shock the little guy made his way to me, and came lie next to my leg. It was clear that he had suffered an injury on his front right leg and after a few seconds thinking about the options were I decided to take him home in hopes that the #torontowildlifecentre would take him in.
To my disappointment and despair the TWC was at its capacity relating to young squirrels and the two options given to me by them were to either call Animal Services (to put the animal down) or to take the injured squirrel to Shades of Hope Wildlife Refuge. 🙏🏻 The decision was easy, however getting there was a different story. Fortunately thanks to the kindness of great friends I managed to hitch a ride and off we went on a day trip, 100kms north of Toronto to the town of Pefferlaw.
At the Wildlife Refuge we were greeted by Gail and after an initial assessment we found out that the squirrel was malnourished, possibly he had been abandoned by its mom, was roughly four weeks old and he was full of fleas! 😬 I felt confident with Gail's knowledge and knew that the little one was in good hands. 🙌🏻 In the weeks after leaving Junior 🐿️ at the centre I followed up with Gail to check on his recovery. Fortunately he didn't suffer any broken bones, internal injuries and after a period of five weeks he was released into the wild with his new family. ☺ 🙏🏻 🐿️🎉 The photos above document from the time I took Junior in, to his temporary home at the centre, to some information about the location.
If possible please pay the site a visit and give a contribution. Gail and her team are doing an amazingly incredible job in rescuing and caring for wild animals. ☺♥️🙏🏻 🐿️🎉🙌🏻
It doesn't look like the emergency work done so far was enough to protect the Leuty Lifeguard Station from the rising waters of Lake Ontario. 😔
With lots more rain in the forecast for the next couple of days things aren't looking good. Hoping for the best for this Toronto landmark. 🙏🏻 . . .

What goes around, comes around 🐿️ 🙏🏻 ❤️

After almost two weeks trying to rescue this squirrel, we finally managed to do so a couple of days ago. Thanks to the kind people of the Toronto Wildlife Centre, the squirrel was taken for assessment and released back into the wild today. 🙏🏻 It was a special moment and I'm extremely thankful to this amazing organization. If you haven't heard about them, take a moment and visit their site. They're doing an amazing job and need any and all contribution that we can provide.
On a separate note, I'd like to ask that the dog owners keep wildlife in mind and do not allow their dogs to roam free. There are several off-leash areas around the city and a couple within the beach neighbourhood. Please respect the bylaw, respect the wildlife and respect other people. Not everyone is comfortable with dogs, not everyone likes them, and certainly no one likes to step in dog 💩! Plus, dogs chasing squirrels, seagulls, swams and other animals isn't cute or harmless. How would you like if a bigger animal stalked your dog just because it wants to "play"? Respect animals, respect others, be kind. 🙏🏻 #toronto #torontophoto #ThankYouToronto #lovetoronto #streetsoftoronto #karma #explorecanada #exploreontario #blogto #DiscoverON #namaste #mindfullness #outsideisfree #igerstoronto #igcanada #thebeaches #thebeach #thecanadiancollective #igtoronto #memoirsoftoronto #totescanadian #twc #torontowildlifecentre
