First beaver at Scottish loch in 400 years

6 posts in this topic

The first wild beaver in more than 400 years has been trapped at a Perthshire nature reserve in order to perform health checks and a DNA test.

The wild beaver had been spotted at the Loch of the Lowes in August.

Staff have managed to catch the animal, which has been identified as a two to three year old male European Beaver.

The aquatic mammal was taken to Edinburgh Zoo for a proper health check and DNA testing, before being released back into the reserve.

They're only making sure it's healthy. Nothing wrong with that.

That's good news!!! I wonder where he came from, and if there are any more in the area to keep him company?
