For a short time, a new resident received VIP treatment from staff at . That new resident - a baby squirrel.
"We had squirrels in the Senior Center and when Mr. Moff got them out, I think the mama ran off and left the baby behind," said Laura Paul-Cone, Grayson City Administrator.
Paul-Cone said that was Wednesday. By the time she saw the baby squirrel again on Friday, it seemed happy to see her.
"When I was leaving City Hall, it kind of ran in front of me and stopped. It acted like it wanted to come to me," Paul-Cone said. "I didn't realize it was so young. I went and got a box and it started crawling toward me. When he got close enough I just picked him up. He must have been hungry - he was trying to nurse my finger."
Paul-Cone said they contacted someone who has a petting zoo and they were put in touch with Linda Coker, who is registered with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in wildlife rescue.
"She said he's probably about six weeks old. She will bottle feed him until he's about 14 weeks and then he will be released, probably at the Yellow River Game Ranch," Paul-Cone said. "He was adorable. I would loved to have taken him home with me, but I have a dog that thinks squirrels are to chase."
Paul-Cone said Coker told her that since the squirrel will likely be tame, having been hand raised, he will probably be able to interact with visitors to the Game Ranch.
