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.
