Beavers threaten Gdynia!

http://www.polskieradio.pl/zagranica/news/artykul72477_Beavers_threaten
_Gdynia.html

The port of Gdynia is having problems with beavers, which have built a
network of dams on wetlands in one of the city's suburbs. Local
residents worry that in the spring, the rising water will flood the
basements of their houses. Beavers are a protected species in Poland
but Gdynia residents hope that with the help of local forestry
officials, who could remove some of the dams, it will be possible to
persuade the beavers to find other places to settle. The Tricity of
Gdañsk, Gdynia and Sopot have occasionally had problems with wild
boar, which roamed in some districts, causing damage to lawns and
rummaging through rubbish.

Wild boar!!!! Used to drive us mad, noisy and make a hell of a mess. One evening we had 14 in the garden from big fat mummy one to all the little stripey babies. Very sweet but my Mrswas petrifide.

Beavers is a new on though.

Re: Beavers threaten Gdynia!

Several places in England now have large populations of wild boar. A reintroduced species.

You haven't met a really scary beaver yet then varsovian...

Re: Beavers threaten Gdynia!

Hunters shoot beaver in this part of Poland. I've also seen many badger and weasel skins hanging on walls here.

Re: Beavers threaten Gdynia!

Beaver hunting in Poland…lol

Sorry couldn’t resist

Re: Beavers threaten Gdynia!

The part of Poland by the German border is one of the best hunting grounds in Europe.

Boar, deer, pheasants…beautiful stock. I’ve gone around Strzelce and Sobotka last year. Truly remarkable wildlife.

Re: Beavers threaten Gdynia!

Not only beavers, but pheasant pluckers too!

Badgers

Re: Beavers threaten Gdynia!

Badgers are for Welsh politicians, are they not?
