Tame Squirrel Comes Running Whenever His Human Calls Despite Having Been Released Several Years Ago

An orphaned and tame fox squirrel named Peanut always comes running home whenever his human Roger Durre calls for him. Once inside, the little squirrel is able to snag a treat or two before Durre takes him back outside. According to Durre in 2011, Peanut had been released some time ago, but keeps running home to his daddy.

Bottle raised baby fox squirrel loves his daddy too much to leave home and was released two years ago. I am a licensed rehabilitation home for orphaned squirrels. Over the past five years I have released over 20 squirrels, but “peanut” is the only one that comes when I call him.
