Give beavers permanent residence - we'd be dam stupid not to

Willby N & Law A (2016) Give beavers permanent residence - we'd be dam stupid not to. The Conversation. 24.02.2016.

First paragraph: Beavers have recently made a tentative return to Britain. Scotland has led the way, with an official trial population in Knapdale, a remote area of lochs and forest in the west of the country; and another in Tayside to the east, suspected to come from private-collection escapees and unlicensed releases. Further south, a small feral population in Devon in south-west England is currently being tolerated by officialdom and admired locally, while there are also plans for a trial in mid-Wales.
