Right, re-introduced in the early 90s.

Some interesting reporting, thus from 1999: Beavers a threat to Dykes: ...reintroduced [in Biesbosch] between 1988 and 1991The introduced animals suffered high mortality and the population grew very slowly. The total population size in 1997 was 65 animals and it is increasing at a very slow rate.[^]

Yet 12 years later, the BBC reports: The beaver-breeding programme began in 1988, and since then the beaver population has grown exponentially[^]

Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: The BBC, they just lie all the time about the environment.

"Triumphant mating habits combined with the beavers' ability to breed so successfully in the Dutch countryside "

What the f*** is a 'triumphant mating habit'? DOes it involve trumpets and fanfares I wonder?

And what is so special about the Dutch countryside when it comes to getting beavers to f***? Dykes can't be a turn on surely! Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh:


" they have been moving beyond the southern province of Limburg and entering towns and cities that may not be prepared for the influx."

Where there arent any Dykes, and Limburg is a long way from Biesbosch anywy, but the suggestion here is the Limburg is basically all countryside, and everything south is town and city. South of Limburg is the Ardennes for f***s sake, about as un city like as you can get.


WHat a fantastically incorrect and fumblingly inaccurate pile fo crap reporting that is!


Anyway, beavers make good hats apparently, shame they are out of fashion.Smile | :)
