I think there was an article in the Everett Herald a while back about USFS working with some group releasing beavers in drainages up that way.  They were putting them in places where none existed to try to establish them.   Guessing the areas they chose where uninhabited for a reason and the critters headed down stream to more friendly environments...  I might have even seen in on here when someone posted it, can't remember.  It was commicle.
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

Floy T-bar Tag, also known as a spaghetti tag. Pretty common fish or wildlife tag used for different purposes. Kind of surprised it was not marked with some type of identifier, they are readily available in many colors with any wording or sequential numbering you want. We used hundreds a year for different mark recapture projects.

"Ben Dittbrenner is a co-founder of Beavers Northwest; he has been the organizationís Executive Director since inception. Ben holds an MS in Biodiversity, Conservation, and Policy from the University at Albany, and BS degrees in Biology, and Environmental Science and Conservation from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. He currently is a PhD candidate in Aquatic Ecology at the University of Washington, School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. His research there focuses on exploring non-traditional approaches to promote habitat enhancement and maintenance, increase ecosystem resilience, and reduced effects of climate change on riparian systems at multiple scales. He co-manages the Sky Beaver Project, which seeks to relocate beavers from areas where human-beaver conflicts would normally result in euthanization of the beaver to headwater riparian systems. The project assess how beaver dams and networks of beaver dams modify measures of stream water quantity and timing, such as residence time, base flow, hyporheic lateral flow, and stream temperature. ​Ben has managed beavers and worked with landowners to reduce conflict in a number of capacities for over 10 years. He is passionate about environmental education, creating opportunities for emerging ecologists, and providing landowners with realistic options to enable them to coexist with wildlife."

Would like to know where this 2nd chance nuisance beaver came from.  Seems odd that it was tagged without a trackable identification number. 
Any info on where it came from, when/where it was released and what the end goal was?  Are they just turning them loose on someone else?

Never seen so much mystique surrounding a beaver. This is what legends are made of boys

Where did you catch it?  It is no longer illegal to relocate beavers on the westside.  New legislation passed this past session.
:yeah:
Let that LEO know she was wrong.  Huntwa said so.  :chuckle:

I actually just asked the question. Isn't that what this forum's for - gaining knowledge?

Yes and no about relocating beaver on the westside
