England's Wild Beaver Colony Has Kits

#1 by Voltman , Wed Jun 24, 2015 8:44 am

"A female from the first wild beaver colony in England for centuries has given birth to at least two young."

Who doesn't love Beavers?
New footage shows the kits being helped through the water by their mother.

Lets hope the beavers re-establish themselves
they were hunted to extinction 500 years ago

Give them a few years and they will be culling them, we know they will upset farmers at some time.

And when the otters come back in large numbers,watch the fishermen start moaning about less fish in the rivers.

If by Fishermen you mean Anglers, then screw 'em.
They have no rights over nature. Their lead and line have caused way too much damage over the years for them to deserve any consideration.

Only Man hunts it's prey to extinction.
