Our story on a squirrel in the Covington area that appears to have a bullet lodged beneath its skin is a big attraction on our website. Some of our viewers are suggesting the lump is not a bullet but perhaps a parasite instead.
Our original story included an interview with a veterinarian who said, yes, the squirrel could continue to live a normal life if it happened to catch a lucky break and the bullet didn’t hit any vital organs.
Some of our viewers also let us know that the lump could be from a worm parasite instead.
For now, there’s no word of any plans to trap the squirrel and find out for sure.
