Tuesday October 7, 2008 - Email this article to a friend

The European beaver is to be re-introduced to Scotland for the first time in 400 years.

4 beaver families will be captured in Norway and then released in Knapdale in Argyll next Spring.

The trial will be run over 5 years by the Scottish Wildlife Trust and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.

The beaver was hunted to extinction back in the 16th century and this will be the first formal re-introduction of a native mammal into the wild in the UK.
