rodentia in a can

Yet another reason I should always carry my camera. My sis and I were out walking a few days ago and we passed a big trash can with a plastic swinging lid. You know the kind--you have to push it sort of hard and then it tries to grab your hand. From the can issued loud scrabbling sounds. Hmm, I thought, that sounds like a trapped squirrel. Indeed, we could see its little claws through a small opening which it might've chewed in trying to escape. I found a thick stick and pushed the lid open. The squirrel looked at us for some time before finally deciding it was safe to exit. Shortly thereafter we heard its mama shouting at it for being late to dinner.
