Mother Squirrel Saves Her Baby

A mother squirrel was caught on camera protecting her baby from the jaws of a large black dog. The first image shows the dog about to start pouncing and playing with the baby as the mother looks on, but then the rest of the series depicts the mother diving down and attacking the dog so the youngster has a chance to escape. It looks like all three parties involved came out mostly unscathed, but the dog might have some scratches where the squirrel bit him on the neck and face.

Yay mommy squirrel. Didn't look like the dog was trying to viciously kill it though as they were trying to make it sound like. The way the dog is positioned in the photos, looks like it was trying to play with the baby squirrel. I'm sure it probably would've killed it by accident, but not intentionally.

also for the love of god avoid the daily mail. even for stories like this it isn't worth the paper it's printed on or the bytes on the server.

Aw, don't worry about the occasional duplicates. With nearly 23,000 posts on Neatorama, I don't remember this myself. You guys know the blog better than me :)
