And thanks for all the fish

Three families of beavers have been released into a Scottish forest, reintroducing the creatures to the UK after a 500 year absence.

Opponents fear that beavers could damage stocks of salmon and other fish, threatening angling which is worth £100million annually to the Scottish economy. But the 11 beavers, fitted with tracking devices, are not being released in salmon rivers.

Nothing to worry about then. (Canadians will detect a note of sarcasm.)

Were the salmon AND beavers part of the ecosystem? IF so, then the echo warriors need to shut up and go back to studying their natural HISTORY.
