    Default Those Dam Beavers: Illegal Imigrants?

    These li'l critters just won't die!

    British government says Bavarian beavers may be illegal immigrants

    Canadian Press October 31, 2005

    LONDON (AP) - The British government said Friday that six beavers released in an effort to re-establish the species may be illegal immigrants.

    The Eurasian beavers were released Thursday into an enclosure at the Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswold Water Park in western England with hopes that the animals, which have been extinct in England since the 12th century, might again freely populate the countryside.

    But the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said that Jeremy Paxton, who owns the estate, had not obtained the necessary licence.

    British law bans the release into the wild of "any animal which is not ordinarily resident in and is not a regular visitor to Great Britain in a wild state." The offence carries up to two years' imprisonment and an unlimited fine.

    Paxton's legal team argues that the beavers' outdoors enclosure does not constitute "the wild"; the department said in a statement that it subscribes to a broad definition of the term, "as once an animal is released from captivity it is difficult if not impossible to prevent its spread." The statement continued: "Mr. Paxton will therefore be committing an offence if he releases any beavers from captivity."

    The department said a similar scheme in southeast England, in which two beavers are being kept in an enclosure, had required - and obtained - a licence.
