Framingham Officials Eliminate Beavers To Solve Dam ProblemPlay
Framingham city officials say they have successfully trapped and killed beavers in two locations where their dams caused waters to flood and freeze on roads, posing a public safety threat.
Because state law prohibits transporting beavers to different locations, the city says they had no choice but to set lethal traps — but the move has drawn criticism from some residents and animal rights groups.
