We have a "pet " black squirrel that we released at our home that was rehabbed at my sister's licensed wildlife center. she is about 5 years old. her tail had gotten broken a year ago and during the hard winter it got frost bit and 5 months later it looks like she is still chewing on it and it bleeds occasionally.
