Not everyone knows, but gentle-voiced painter Bob Ross, whom many of us remember from The Joy Of Painting which ran on PBS from 1983 to 1994, was a big animal lover, and had a fondness for trying to rehabilitate lost or wounded animals. Apparently, he once brought home an injured alligator and tried to nurse it back to health in the family bathtub. Here, he’s bottle feeding a baby squirrel. We hope this little guy eventually found his way back to some happy trees.
