Would not be the first time the SNH beaver team has lied.

We’re off to the upper Tay on Saturday, really looking forward to it but fearful of what we’ll find after seeing the amount of damage to the banks last year

How did Scotland ever survive when beavers were much more common than they are now? :roll:

We Scots are a canny bunch. Don't like change, it unsettles our world view.  :lol:

Likely answer ... much, much smaller population back over 400 years ago, still managed to kill the beavers off, so must have surviving with a fair bit of beaver in the diet !

Beavers had to be exterminated in Scotland. It was proven beyond any reasonable doubt that they gnawed the legs off small children who had been left unattended or dropped near water by rampaging sea eagles. No responsible landowner or game keeping organisation could ignore this.
