In July 2018, a pair of beavers was released into a 7 ha enclosure near Lydbrook in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England. These were removed in February 2019 following a positive test for the parasitic tapeworm Echinococcus multicularis in one of them. Subsequently, another pair of beavers was released in the autumn of 2019, and currently the pair appear to be doing well (BBC News, Gloucestershire Live, News Archyves UK).
