    A long time without beaver

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/g...re/4380276.stm

    Beavers are being reintroduced to the UK, 500 years after they were hunted to extinction for their fur.
    Six European beavers are to be released at Lower Mill Estate near South Cerney, Gloucestershire, and will be the first to roam wild in the UK for centuries.

    The six adult rodents were caught in Bavaria in the spring and have spent the last few months in quarantine.

    If the pioneering scheme is successful, it is hoped beavers can once again thrive in the British countryside.

    Although the animals will be confined to a 500-acre site to start with, experts hope to remove the fences once the beavers have settled in so they can roam freely.

    The beaver was hunted to extinction for its fur and the pain-relieving properties of its anal gland secretions.

    Whereas, the American beaver can be destructive, environmentalists say the European species should be a force for good in the countryside.

    It is vegetarian so it should not deplete fish stocks in rivers and the beavers could also help keep waterways clear of debris


    There you go, wild German beavers now available in the UK.

        Beavers are best left to enjoy their natural fur. Never seen the attraction in a bald beaver.

          Can't see the atraction is a beaver which looks like Terry Waites allotment myself.
          Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

          I preferred version 1!
