That would sound right they arived in Scotland illegally or through the back door.The agenda is a series of 'soft releases' in England to get the damn things re-established without the rigmarole of a full blown re-introduction programme and all the debate that that entails. Basically get beavers back out there through the back door.
If you care to research it you'll find beavers were released illegally in Scotland, there was no government approval at the time of their release, that's a fact.The Scottish Beaver Trial is a partnership project between the Scottish Wildlife Trust, The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and host partner Forestry Commission Scotland. In May 2008, the Scottish Government approved an application submitted by the three partners for a five-year trial reintroduction of the Eurasian beaver
Not the back door the front door
That was research into who released them and whether approval was given,what year were the back door beavers releasedIf you care to research it you'll find beavers were released illegally in Scotland, there was no government approval at the time of their release, that's a fact.
That's regarded as the back door.
That post reminds me of a comment I made here years ago regarding the proposals to release at Knapdale.I had a wee exchange of views with the author on the Scottish Wild Beaver page on Facebook. He has a very high opinion of his own opinion.
