‘Nuisance’ beavers being trapped, removed in Sparks

Nusiance beavers are chewing their way through Sparks and raising the potential for flooding. The Sparks Tribune reports the Nevada Department of Wildlife gave the OK for the city to hire a contractor to trap and euthanize beavers. The city says the beavers are chewing trees and building dams, and they fear they could block a storm-drainage ditch that’s part of the North Truckee Drain.
