Feb. 21, 2017 — Claudia Biddle, 52, of Boston, shares her home with her cat, her husband, and the occasional sick squirrel. On the afternoon of February 21, Claudia managed to capture a squirrel whom she refers to as Tommy because she noticed he had malocclusion of both of his bottom incisors, meaning that his teeth could potentially puncture his brain if left untreated. After a short stay in her home that evening she brought him to a nearby wildlife veterinary hospital. Photo by Sarah Silbiger

Feb. 21, 2017 — Wildlife conservationist Claudia Biddle, 52, of Boston, spends hundreds of dollars each month buying nuts, medication, and natural supplements to feed to the squirrels in the Boston Public Garden. Biddle spends hours cooking specially designed soft nut clusters packed with vitamins so that sick and injured animals are able to get the nutrients they need to survive. She’s passionate about raising awareness about the harm dogs that roam without leashes inflict on local wildlife. Photo by Sarah Silbiger

Feb. 21, 2017 — Wildlife conservationist Claudia Biddle, 52, of Boston, recalls guests at her weddings joking that she was a modern day Snow White as squirrels gathered at her feet during her outdoor wedding to her husband, Fred, in the Boston Public Garden. Rather than toss rice, the couple opted to hand out small bags of hard-shell nuts so that the squirrels could enjoy the ceremony as well. Biddle specifically planned to say her vows under the tree of which her favorite squirrel at the time, Mabel, was often found. Photo by Sarah Silbiger
