A sighting of a lone wild beaver on the River Otter in Devon, England was reported in July last year, and again last month at the same location. Now, a family of three beavers has been filmed on the River Otter (BBC News Devon; Mail Online; The Guardian). Although it is not known where they come from, the landowner, David Lawrence, is quite happy for them to be there. Tom Buckley, an environmentalist, has been filming the beavers as well as otters, which seem to be using the same bit of turf. Apparently, the Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has said that it is not lawful to release beavers in England, and they are considering what action to take – watch this space!
