Good Detroit News (For a Change): the Beavers Are Back!

That's right, delicious and nutritious beavers are returning to the Detroit River after being gone for decades. This is an encouraging sign that efforts to clean up the waterways are working. See, it's not all almost-free homes and urban blight.

(I made up the stuff about beavers being delicious and nutritious)

The Detroit Free Press reports that a beaver lodge has been discovered in an intake canal at a Detroit Edison riverfront plant. Officials believe the beaver spotted by the utility's motion-sensitive camera marks the animal's return to the river for the first time in at least 75 years.
