Beaver at Big Rock

Beaver at Big Rock: Sheri Hayward and her son Morgan got a big surprise last week when they spotted a very tired beaver at Big Rock. They drove home and phoned Mountainaire Avian Rescue who came and picked up the water-logged little guy. When beavers venture into the ocean, they can sometimes get salt water into their lungs. He will be relocated after he has been re-hydrated. Meanwhile, Morgan was inspired to write a song about the lost rodent. - Photo by Sheri Hayward
