Jobs may be disappearing and the population plummeting, but at least beavers are returning to Detroit.
CBC News reports:
For the first time in perhaps a century, a beaver has been discovered living in Michigan's Detroit River.
Workers at Detroit Edison's Conners Creek power plant on Detroit's east riverfront caught images of the animal in November, using motion-sensitive cameras, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services authorities say it's been between 75 and 100 years since a beaver was last seen in the river.
"It's part of that larger story of ecological recovery," John Hartig, the Detroit River refuge manager for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, told the paper.
