The Beaver is safe at Brookside Elementary

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Maintenance crews had set out traps at Brookside Elementary in Lake Forest Park for a beaver who was - surprise! - building a dam across a tributary of McAleer Creek near the school.

Mothers and children protested, City Hall was lobbied (it wasn't their doing), and Lake Forest Park police tried to stay aloof while maintaining their position of enforcing laws, after someone kept springing the traps.

The School District called off the maintenance crews and will examine other options for keeping the school grounds from flooding.

Eric Lacitis wrote an article in The Seattle Times which is worth the read.

(If anyone has a photo of one of our local beavers, please share it with us!)
