Baby squirrel gets cast for broken ankle

(WXYZ) - What a sweet little baby squirrel. 

The tiny animal was brought into a wildlife rehabilitation center in Washington, D.C. after she fell 75 feet from her nest.

A worker who posted on the City Wildlife Facebook page wrote that the squirrel hit the concrete sidewalk below her nest and suffered a bloody nose, a broken tooth and a broken ankle.

They posted a picture of the squirrel in a big ankle cast. 

The organization wrote that the squirrel's ankle should heal very quickly and she's expected to make a full recovery.
