Orphaned red squirrel siblings rescued by animal charity
The Scottish SPCA found Ginger and Spice with their feet covered with antifreeze in a garage.
Two orphaned red squirrel siblings are being hand-reared by Scottish SPCA staff in Elgin.
The charity was alerted on May 24 when a member of the public discovered the kits in a commercial garage with their feet and tails covered in antifreeze.
After rescuing them, the two females are being looked after at the National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross, Clackmannanshire, where staff have named them Ginger and Spice.
Centre manager Colin Seddon said: "Ginger and Spice had scurried through a small puddle of antifreeze in the garage and their tails and feet were soaked in the substance.
"Thankfully, they had not ingested any of it as this is toxic to them.
"Ginger and Spice are doing really well and are currently being hand-reared with a special milk formula.
"It won't be long until they are strong enough to be moved to one of our outdoor enclosures before being released back into the wild."
A spokeswoman for the charity added that anyone who discovers an injured or distressed wild animal can call its animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
