Wow, Melinda I didn't know it was illegal .

As for raising a squirrel and releasing it back to the wild, we did. My sister found a tiny baby squirrel when she was out jogging (back in early 80's) and brought it home. We immediately took it to our vet for formula and advice. Once old enough we would let it out in our back yard during the day, our viscous hunter cat would actually not permit it to leave our yard, lol. Eventually Theodore, started climbing trees and would wonder farther and farther, until he didn't come in at night. He did return to our yard to collect nuts and we watched him until we moved a couple of years later. We could ID him because he had a very unique tail.
