Here's a sad story that has a happy ending. A bad storm in McAlester, Oklahoma, struck a tree, shattering tree bark across a radius of 100 feet and killing a momma squirrel in the process. This abandoned a tiny baby squirrel. The account of an orphaned baby squirrel in McAlester, Oklahoma, is written up in the McAlester News-Capital. Here's a snippet:
Renagar asked for Lauretta Fontaine, who he said is an animal adoption specialist. She held the tiny creature gently in her hands. Fontaine instantly mixed up a bottle of powdered puppy formula and poured it in the bottle. After a few tries, the baby squirrel began sucking hungrily. “It’s got to be fed every two or three hours,” Fontaine said. “That means I’ll be waking up tonight.” She also took a towel out of a dryer, so the squirrel could nestle in the warm cloth.
So the squirrel is now in good hands. Appropriately, they've decided to name the squirrel "Lucky".
