Is it possible for humans to properly raise wild squirrel babies?

I don't know if I should even try - they are wild.

It isn't much different than raising a rat or a rabbit, the squirrel will probably bite you and won't like being in a cage. Best to let it go.

Yes this can be done but it is best done by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. You can contact your local state veterinarians office to help you find one.

There's steps to rescuing orphaned babies, too numerous to list here, available online. See if there is a wildlife rescuer who can take them first, that's the best solution.
