• Cute animals: Canada's lonely beaver makes a new friend at Alberta Conservation Centre - TomoNews

    ALBERTA, CANADA — A baby beaver who was rescued by an Canadian conservation center in 2016 and gained internet fame as the 'lonely beaver' is lonely no more, because she has found a new friend. According to Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation, the 5-week-old baby beaver was found alone on a golf course in northwest Calgary with wounds on her tail. The beaver kit was admitted to the conservation center for recovery, where she has since stayed. Netizens noticed the female rodent was living alone, they quickly nicknamed her "the lonely beaver." However, things are about to change for the better. Earlier this year, a 2-year-old male beaver was admitted to the conservation center after he was found in a storm drain with a bite wound on his lower back. As beavers live better when t...

This lakeside property is a mosaic of landscapes, including 800 metres of shoreline, several smaller wetlands and their associated riparian areas, aspen forest, native and tame grasslands and an inlet that drains into the lake. In addition to the deer, moose and coyotes that frequent the property, ospreys and white American pelicans use the land around Pine Lake for nesting.

ALBERTA, CANADA — A baby beaver who was rescued by an Canadian conservation center in 2016 and gained internet fame as the 'lonely beaver' is lonely no more, because she has found a new friend. According to Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation, the 5-week-old baby beaver was found alone on a golf course in northwest Calgary with wounds on her tail. The beaver kit was admitted to the conservation center for recovery, where she has since stayed. Netizens noticed the female rodent was living alone, they quickly nicknamed her "the lonely beaver." However, things are about to change for the better. Earlier this year, a 2-year-old male beaver was admitted to the conservation center after he was found in a storm drain with a bite wound on his lower back. As beavers live better when they have a companion, the conservation center decided to introduce the two to each other. According to their handlers, the two are now best friends, and since they haven't reached to the age for breeding yet, their relationship is purely platonic. These two adorable beavers will be released together in June 2018. Since caring for wildlife is generally expensive, the conservation center has set up a GoFundMe for the pair's medical costs, which are expected to amount to $23,000. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.
