Not a good prognosis for the beaver.

The word is in from Tuft's....our beaver friend is missing both bottom teeth and one top tooth, due to an old injury. The mouth is also very infected. As you may or may not know, without a properly working mouth and teeth, the beaver would be sentenced to a long, suffering death in the wild. They are going to start antibiotics, but their guts apparently don't handle them too well and he isn't eating to begin with.
So a lot is up in the air for our friend...who turns out to be probably between 1 & 2 years old...but they are going to keep trying, so there is some hope however small it may be. So everyone keep your fingers crossed and send some good thoughts his way!!
