After members of the Enfield EMS helped a squirrel in distress last week, PETA is recognizing those first responders’ efforts.
Last Friday, a squirrel got a yogurt cup stuck on its head.
Using a pink blanket, EMS officials were able to get the cup off the animal's head and set it free into the wild.
On Wednesday, PETA said Compassionate Action Awards, along with a batch of vegan cookies, were on their way to Ralph Armstrong and Keith Taylor of Enfield EMS, thanking them for their rescue efforts.
PETA said incidents like this one are easy to prevent, and offered tips for keeping animals from getting stuck in containers:
