He Cut Down A Tree With Baby Squirrels In It — And Now He’s Their Mom

YouTuber Elliot Lombardo was doing yard work when he accidentally cut down a tree that was home to two baby squirrels.

Knowing that he couldn’t simply leave the babies helpless and alone, Lombardo decided to adopt the squirrels. He moved them into his garage and named them Apple and Moses. It wasn’t long before the tiny critters began to look to him as their new “mom.”

I wish someone loved me this much!

I bet this is what they do in their spare time.

It should be noted that squirrels are wild animals and should not be kept as pets. However, in this case, Lombardo did the right thing, as the mother was nowhere in sight and the babies would have most likely died on their own. If you find a helpless or injured squirrel, contact your local animal control or check out these FAQs.
