Devon wild beavers cleared to stay on the River Otter

By Emily Himes

In Devon, England, Beavers have been inhabiting the River Otter for a very long time, but recently some concerns have been raised about their health and the sanitation of the River. There are about 3 young beavers and 4 adults. The Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (Defra) has proposed that the beavers are free of all tapeworms. The Devon Wildlife Trust was able to look after the beavers for five years as long as they were free of any diseases harmful to humans. The beavers are currently being kept in a lodge, but will be let back into the wild soon.
