Here’s a report I just received from the Lindsay Wildlife Museum:
Gary: The beaver that was brought to us on Thursday from downtown Martinez unfortunately died overnight. As of 6 p.m. Thursday night, his condition was extremely guarded and the prognosis looked poor. He was receiving antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medication and fluids to attempt to stabilize his condition. It appears that he died in his sleep. A postmortem examination will be performed to try to determine the cause of this beaver’s illness. /Susan

I suspect the beaver was fading fast when it got picked up on the bank of the creek by Animal Services on Thursday. I’m sorry. /gary
