Beavers Removed from Starke County Forest to Solve Drainage Issues


Beavers have been removed from the Starke County Forest, in an attempt to improve drainage in the area. Starke County Park Board President Debbie Mix says the removal is complete, and the board approved the bill for the work Tuesday.

For the past several months, a neighboring landowner has been blaming beaver dams in the forest for flooding, but Forester Bruce Wakeland has disputed those claims.
