Nashua should learn from beaver death
It’s stunning to me that, in the entire community of Nashua, there is apparently not anyone who recognizes that a young, dispersing beaver is trying to get to the water and will likely be hit by traffic if not assisted (March 31: “Injured beaver dies”).
Exposing schoolchildren to this heartless failure is unfortunate. This could have been a powerful opportunity to show children what communities can accomplish when they work together and how good it feels to help each other or another species.
Instead, it was a flurry of morning activity ending with a pointless death.
Dispersal of young beavers seeking their own territory happens every March, and Nashua should learn from this event and have a plan to deal better with it next time.
