Taxi-Driver and His Squirrel Minsk Are Inseparable

Who knew you could domesticate a squirrel?

Three years ago, a man by the name of Pyotr Pankratau rescued a baby squirrel while a soldier in the Belarussian army.

The little guy must have fallen out of a tree because when Pankratau found him he was unconscious and nearly dead.

“Two weeks after I found him everything got back to normal,” said Pankratau. “I fed him with baby food and milk through a syringe then his teeth came out and he started eating by himself. Half a year later I vaccinated and registered him.”

After leaving the army, Pankratau began working as a cab driver and Minsk has never left his side.

From the the looks of it, Minsk is very well-trained.

It appears that there really is no turning back once you tame a wild animal. It is yours forever.
