An injured beaver was found and rescued from outside the Sloop Tavern (2830 NW Market St.) Sunday afternoon. My Ballard reader Zach Gaul wrote to tell us of the rescue, saying he was at the Sloop when a worker asked for some help in identifying the beaver.

Gaul said it was pretty apparent the beaver had been injured or was sick, and animal control was called out to check out the critter. When Seattle Animal Control arrived, an officer pointed out that there was some blood on the animal’s hind leg and that it would be transported to PAWS where they could treat and release him.”I have never seen a beaver around the neighborhood despite living in the area for my entire life,” Gaul writes.
We have a call out to Animal Control to find out what happened to the injured beaver; we’ll update with any new information.
