Beaver travels to Muskoka to undergo life-saving surgery
A beaver that was shot in Napanee has been taken halfway across Southern Ontario to save it’s life.
The beaver was discovered in Napanee and brought to Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre Monday evening where they eventually discovered it had various lead bullets lodged in its face.
Leah Birmingham with the centre, decided the best chance for the beaver was to have it moved to a sanctuary in Muskoka, to have Dr. Sherry Cox perform surgery on it.
Cox is an animal surgeon with the National Wildlife Services.
The beaver was transported by two volunteers who met in the middle and will need to recover over the winter before it can be released.
