Beaver Rescued From Canal
Beaver Rescued From Canal

Look who showed up yesterday! This adult beaver was rescued from SRP's Grand Canal in Phoenix. There’s some food there, but it’s not an ideal spot at all. When people began to harass him it was time to intervene. We have a perfect release spot in mind for him where there are other beavers and no people. He’ll be ready to go very shortly!
