Beaver full of arrows found near West Kelowna yacht club

The injured animal was found today by a Kelowna resident

A beaver was found near the West Kelowna yacht club Friday with arrows embedded in its fur.

Passerby Saskia Dover saw the animal floating in the water at about 12:45 p.m. at the end of Powers Creek.

She took photos of the beaver and contacted a conservation officer.

“They said they would have to put it down once they got out there,” said Dover. “Definitely too many injuries… it was very, very sad. Poor little guy.”

The Capital News is currently waiting for a response from a conservation officer.
