Heroic Beavers Contain Oil Spill

March 27th, 2013

Willard Bay, north of Salt Lake City, Utah, was saved from a Chevron fuel spill by none other than a beaver dam! Two beavers were pulled from the area and are credited for keeping the oil spill from spreading into a nearby reservoir.

The American beavers are receiving medical care at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah. Since the accident, 4 more beavers have been rescued and taken to the rehabilitation center. You can check the progress of the beavers’ recovery on the rehabilitation center’s facebook page.

Such a heartwarming story of real life beavers!
