If only one of the beavers was a famous personality and could sing songs about the beaver plight. Pop songs that are serious but fun, too. Of course, I can only be referring to that famous singer, teen sensation:

Justin Beaver!

I agree with Ariston. The ecosystem will have changed since the beavers were last here. For one thing there are no longer any natural predators. We currently have a situation with red deer where there has to be human intervention (in the form of culling) to keep their numbers down. Otherwise they will damage the ecosystem by over-grazing. With nothing to keep beaver numbers down how long would it be until they too would need human intervention.

I would love to see the reintroduction of once-native species returning to the UK, but I believe the way to do that is by well thought out study and planning (like the link Firenze provided).

One day I will think of something worth saying here.

Oh for fuck's sake. Was resurrecting this thread for another lame joke, if not as tasteless as your usual, really worth it to you?

“Therefore, let it be explained that nowhere are the proprieties quite so strictly enforced as in men’s colleges that invite young women guests, especially over-night visitors in the fraternity houses.” Emily Post, 1937.
