Squirrels can swim, but not very well. I guess the squirrel in the pool got tired and drowned since it couldn't find a way out of there.

I think it paniced and cried out and scratched at the side for a few moments and went under.

If it was an adult it would have lasted longer and I might have seen the water moving when I looked out with a flash light.

It was just a small little baby one.

What got to me was that I heard it's little crys for help and might of had time to pull it out and give it squirrelly cpr if I had just gone out there instead of looking out a window and making assumptions.

If it was still above water for awhile I think it would have kept crying more but it paniced and went right under is what I figure must have happened. Was probably one of the parents I heard rustling in the bushes later ...or maybe a sibling?

That is friggin hilarious!

If I ever have an opportunity to do that to a friend I will certainly use that one :) Maybe a skydiving version with one hung up in a parachute hanging from a tree :)

I did cut the tail off a fresh roadkill once for a cat toy... omg cats LOVE fresh squirrel tail to toss around... one of the best toys ever! till it gets hard and stiff.

It's a shame when these kind of things happen, but there really wasn't much you could do given the circumstances.
