Stumpy the Squirrel

Stumpy the Squirrel Goes Back Home:

    MACHIAS, Wash. (AP) — A squirrel with half a tail and no left hind foot is back with his caretakers after 10 days on the lam.

    The squirrel, named Stumpy, was found six miles from the residence of Steve and Marcia Carter, who fought back tears when he was returned.

    On Sunday afternoon, a woman heard faint tinkling and remembered reading a newspaper article about Stumpy, who had been outfitted with a bell on a collar.

    Sure enough, there was the 8-inch rodent, sitting in her driveway.
