Pool Care and Cleaning
Chipmunks and Squirrels

Do you need to take any precautions if you found a dead squirrel in your pool?

I wouldn't let the kids play with it. Seriously, tho, it

probably wasn't diseased; it just fell in and drowned. But even if

it were sick, there aren't many, if any, diseases that can pass

from squirrel to human, and the chlorine or other sanitizers in the

pool will take care of any organic matter that entered the pool

from the rodent.
