Kudos to the “softies” at city hall and to SABNES who wouldn’t cast a yes vote to euthanize the beavers.
Not only are they our national symbol, but watching their activities is both interesting and educational.
We and so many others, bike, walk and enjoy the nature trails frequently. SABNES is to be commended for their efforts in providing us with this beautiful bit of nature so close to town, but let’s not forget that beavers are a part of nature too.
If in fact the beavers are most interested in willows and poplar, maybe the bases of more of the large trees in the vicinity along the trail could be protected with fencing wire and leave our furry friends to dine on their favourites, which apparently regenerate well.
If I had a vote, it would be to let the beavers be beavers, for their enjoyment and ours.
