Beaver Spotted in Detroit

Stop it right now.

A beaver (the animal) was spotted in Detroit the other day - the first in 75 years! A single beaver lodge was discovered in an intake canal near the Edison's Conners Creek power plant. A spokesperson for the city said this proves the clean-up efforts are working.

Detroit has seen a resurgence of wildlife in recent years, including sturgeon, whitefish, peregrine falcons, walleye, and bald eagles.
