Beaver Rescue – California WIldlife Encounters

A late night call with Sacramento City Animal Control. Officer Huggins notified me that an adult beaver was reported to be injured or sick and was found wandering on a sidewalk at Tanzanite Park. The adult beaver has a very strong unpleasant odor that is secreted from the anal glands and the base of the tail called Castoreum. In the early 20th century, castoreum was used as a food additive in baked goods, ice cream, chewing gum, and perfume. It appears this beaver was possibly attacked by a dog, and using ArmOR Hand Animal Handling Gloves, we were able to safely and compassionately rescue the beaver and take him to the veterinarian for care.
