Baby beaver at the Kevin P. Clinton Wildlife Center
A baby beaver is under the nurturing care of the specially trained staff at the Kevin P. Clinton Wildlife Center. The beaver was two weeks old when it was found orphaned in Stark County.

Beavers develop a closely knit family bond. To foster that environment, only a limited number of caregivers will raise the little one until it is released back into its natural habitat.
