Hello, hope someone can help me, issue is kind of urgent. Also I am not sure if this is the right place to ask questions about releasing squirrels, but I am giving it a try.

Anyhow, I don't live in the States; where I live we have no wildlife rehabilitation centers, so I must count on boards like this one hoping to get some good advice.

I have an orphaned red squirrel that is now around 3 months old (he was a month old when I found him thrown out of the nest by an adult male). We want to release it and we tried today, but it didn't go well - after about an hour after we let him go, he fell of a tree from a decent height (some 20 meters) and now is back home in a state of shock. Luckily he is not injured (we had a vet check on him). Whole day he is sleeping like a baby he was about 2 months ago. That is not a behaviour he was displaying last several weeks. :)

Please let me know whether someone can help us with some advice what to do next, I can provide details if needed.

Thank you,

Sreten
