Orphaned Beavers Learn from Stuffed Animals

July 23rd, 2009

I caught wind of an interesting story today on KVAL.com. Read on:

LYNNWOOD, Wash. — Barely two weeks old, and weighing just one pound, an orphaned beaver came to the PAWS Wildlife Center in Lynnwood hypothermic and weak. It’s rare for PAWS to care for a baby beaver, also called a kit. But just five days later, a hiker brought a second orphan to the center after his mother was run over by a jet-ski. A sad event, but it actually helped PAWS, because beavers are highly social animals and need companions. “In the wild they’re with their mom and some older siblings,” explains PAWS Wildlife Rehabilitation Manager Dondi Byrne.

“So they can become depressed if they’re by themselves or they’re not getting that.” Now the two orphans are living – and learning – together.

Awwww…. Check out the complete story and watch a video of the beavers by visiting kval.com.
