A pair of noble beavers is credited for helping contain a diesel fuel spill in Willard Bay State Park near Salt Lake City. The fuel emitted from a leaky pipeline didn't flow into Willard Bay because of the beaver dam, said officials. Unfortunately, the two beavers were covered in toxic sludge and taken to the Wildlife Rehabilitian Center in Ogden, where they are "doing fairly well," according to the center. Chevron Corp. said 8,000 gallons of the spilled fuel has been recovered so far from a retention pond. Let's hope they're chipping in on the beavers' recovery fund. [Source] [Source]
