It was reported today that DEFRA are planning to remove the new families of beavers setting up home on the river Otter, in Devon. The government agency plans to transfer the animals to zoos or wildlife parks as they are concerned over their effects – still to be proven – on the local environment. Over 9,000 people have so far signed a petition to stop this happening, and the number keeps growing.
