WASHINGTON -- A baby squirrel fell 75 feet from a tree and is recuperating -- with an over-sized cast -- at D.C.'s City Wildlife.

The baby squirrel landed on a sidewalk and broke her ankle. City Wildlife caretakers are helping her recover and say she should heal quickly, according to a tweet from the organization.

City Wildlife is a nonprofit group founded in D.C. in 2008 to rehabilitate and release urban wild animals. The group operates a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center -- the first in the city -- and provides public educational programming and advocacy for wild animals.
