"News & Issues" piece on 16 beavers that have been shot at the Aroostook Nationa
"News & Issues" piece on 16 beavers that have been shot at the Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge. The shootings occurred in early fall in the Greenlaw Brook area, where the federal government has spent $20 million to restore the brook, which was polluted by PCBs, fuels and pesticides when the land was part of Loring Air Force Base in Limestone. When Dave Hopkins, who represents the Air Force, learned that the beavers were building lodges and damming up the brook, he directed that the beavers be killed and hired an animal damage control agent to dispatch them, even though Maine's Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has a policy of relocating problem beavers.
