Compass arts and entertainment Editor Anne Day was hiking in Lakeville near The Hotchkiss School last Monday, Oct. 14, when she spotted a beaver swimming across a small pond.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) notes that beavers can be seen as either beneficial or a nuisance. Humans object to them cutting down trees and creating floods.
