Could the beaver found last week in the West Channel of the East River be the same beaver spotted recently at Roosevelt Island’s Motorgate Garage? The NY Times is reporting the beaver died in transport to a medical clinic up near Utica. You may recall that the Roosevelt Islander posted a couple of posts a week or two ago about sightings of a small / medium animal, possibly a beaver, inside Motorgate Garage. I wonder if the beaver found by the NYPD while patrolling the East River in prep for the Pope’s visit to the UN was the same animal? We don’t get too many beaver sightings around here so perhaps it was the same animal. Either way we are sorry to hear of the beaver’s passing.
