Beavers are going to be allowed to thrive in the Wild after 400 years.

Lets hope no one tries to eat them or steal their fur this time.

Ich, from the article:
"Beavers, semi-aquatic vegetarian mammals, were hunted to extinction in Britain more than four centuries ago because people wanted their meat, fur and castoreum, a secretion that was used in medicine and perfumes."
Lesley Neilson will be thrilled.
ah yes and their perfumed secretion ;-)

I’m with you all the way on this, smuttiness apart
There was talk of releasing some Wolves into the wild in Scotland.

I think that it is a terrible idea. The poor animals would be hounded by many unsavoury characters trying to goad or catch a Wolf and the moment that a Wolf growls then they would be called the big bad Wolf.
Excellent news all round :-)
They belong here, just as they did four centuries ago.
let them thrive!
Beavers in the River Otter? Wonder if there are any otters in Beaver River, NY? :-)
Welcome back beavers bison and wolves.

That's wonderful news. Cute critters.
Consumption of Beaver in North America has all but died out I think, I doubt many will be sharpening their forks if they now live here.
