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.
