First off are you sure it's a shrew and not mole? I know shrews eat mainly insects and ground vegetation. They can bite and from what I read have venom. I certainly don't know what that does to humans but other prey such as moles or field mice will die from being bitten. I would take the safest route and keep it in a box, gather what you can for food. They live underground so darkness is probably good. A bowl of water and then I would call and see if there are any wildlife places near you that could take it. I wish you luck!!
