What's the best part of New York City? The beaver of course. And I don't mean Jim Bouton's voyeuristic kind.
Jose the Bronx beaver is back. Ironically, he lives wild in the Bronx zoo, where he cut down his own Christmas tree for a December nibble.
Jose is a success story, beaver were nearly exterminated from the US, after numbering perhaps 60 million at the time of European settlement in the US. After reaching a low near extinction, beaver are making a comeback. He joins the Manhattan falcons as a prominent symbol of nature in the city.
A little bit of wild in New York, brought to you by the riotous, rollicking power of life to make itself manifest.
See the photo? Yup, he's back. Go Jose, live, breathe, and inspire.
