First beaver seen in Italy for 450 years

A beaver has been seen and filmed using camera traps in Tarvisiano in Friuli-Venezia, in the north-east of Italy. It is believed that the male, nicknamed¬†Ponta by research workers, crossed over the border from Austria. As elsewhere in Europe, beavers were hunted to extinction and heaven’t been present in Italy for over 450 years (Il Globo, The Local (it)).
