Wildlife officials are celebrating the sighting of a beaver in the Detroit River for the first time in decades, signaling that efforts to clean up the waterway are paying off.
The Detroit Free Press reports that a beaver lodge has been discovered in an intake canal at a Detroit Edison riverfront plant. Officials believe the beaver spotted by the utility's motion-sensitive camera marks the animal's return to the river for the first time in at least 75 years.
Photos and video were taken in November, but Detroit Edison didn't want to release them until they could ensure the animal's safety.

Right. Nobody likes a dirty beaver.

I think this is great news, that the water is clean enough for the beaver to return—75 years is a very long time. They’re all over the place where I live.
That said, I knew there’d be jokes about women’s anatomy, but I didn’t expect this many (I think there were one or two posts on topic) and for some reason, I find it irritating. Maybe it’s because I’m a woman and I’d hoped to have some discussion on point, on the environment.
I hesitate to post this because I’m sure I’ll get flamed, but I have a feeling I may not be alone, so I will.
LOL, true enough. :)
Oldie, but kinda cool.
Yes, I remember reading about that! That was a cool story. Thanks for the reminder.
Thanks I just had it stuffed
How long do you think before they have to relocate these beavers because they threaten the intake?
They’ll be sooorrrrryyyyy!
