There's just no 'easy' way to put it. :roll:
The woman in the second photo is my mom.
My wildlife rehabber friend let me 'borrow' her beaver earlier today when I went to get her to check out one of my mice, who has some sort of strange tumor.
She was abandoned. The person who picked her up thinks the mother was hit by a car. This little baby was wondering around on the side of the road alone. She's only a week or two old. ):
I got to feed her out of a bottle, it was adorable.
After she is weaned, she is going to be a 'semi-pet'on a farm. The man that owns the farm is going to finish raising her up, and hopes that she'll stay pretty friendly, but will live on a pond on his property.
