Unhappy about beaver’s death

EDITOR:

Cubby the Beaver and family are being trapped and drowned in the quiet, pristine community of Four Seasons in El Dorado Hills, just off White Rock Road.

This morning at 8:07 I witnessed an employee of Dept. of Fish & Game carrying Cubby’s dead body. What’s worse is that my husband and I, along with other members of our community, had staged an effort to get our homeowners association board to slow down, to study, to educate themselves about beavers and their habitats. But, they voted three to one to kill the beaver. That was one week ago to the day!

And now, looking out that same window, I see a vulture poised on a rock, eyeing the open space. He smells death and so do I.  The killing fields of El Dorado Hills —and here I am living in it.

  1. How sad and pathetic that a group of “adults” would move next to the natural habitat of beavers and then choose to kill it. All in favor of this action should be ashamed of themselves!

  2. How pathetically arrogant for these high-faluting “old” farts to muscle their STUPID AND NATURE-HATING ways on the community at large. There are non-lethal methods clearly available to deal with beavers who build unwanted dams. All they had to do was cal Born Free USA in downtown Sacramento and ask for their help.

    No. It’s just easier to KILL! I’m rarely proud to be a human being. This was so senseless and cruel.

  3. Country living

    Everyone in EDH thinks they live in the country except when they actually encounter a country living experience. Nice….
