Photograph caption dated September 1, 1949 reads "Struck by a truck, a squirrel Emory Smith Jr. thought was dead turned on him when he examined 'body,' damaging his thumb. Emory, of 6237 Kester Ave., Van Nuys, was taken to Van Nuys Receiving Hospital for cauterization of the wound; the squirrel, in a sack, was taken for a rabies inspection. Here Nurse Elspeth Lightbody treats Emory. The squirrel was 'dead on arrival.'"
