Beavers In New York

It seems that these city-slickers don't really know a beaver, even if they claim to have seen one.

The beaver that has made its way to the Bronx appears to be a male, several feet long and 2 or 3 years old, said Patrick Thomas, the mammals curator at the nearby Bronx Zoo.

Beavers aren't "several feet long."

The beaver is the largest member of the rodent family. It is 2 feet long not including its tail.

I hate beavers & Jim Meeker ought to be smarter than to be supportive of these trout habitat destroying rodents. I will make one concession, the first ever, the damned busy bastards wouldn't be so bad if we had high gradient streams, but we live in pretty flat country.
