One thought on “A News Story Involving Both Beavers *and* Gerald of Wales!”

  1. The American Beaver Buzz-Kill here, in his quixotic campaign to convince the British people to abandon their ill considered plan to re-introduce the beaver to their green and pleasant land.
    Regarding Welsh Beavers, I have no specific arguments. I would observe though that if it’s salyclic acid you’re after, there are better ways to get it than the gland at the base of a beaver’s tail, which I won’t say anything more about either. There are willow leaves, the traditional source of the chemical in question — but wait: willows grow near water, so you won’t have any. The beavers will have eaten them all.
