Wild Monday: Montrose beaver

A mystery about the Montrose beaver is where it lives. And does it have a mate?

It has been seen regularly again this spring, as Bob, a faithful reader and occasional e-mailer noted. I think it has been seen for a year or two now.

The Montrose beaver is one of those great wonders of Chicago outdoors. I just love it.

My thought was that it lived in the pond on the golf course. But I haven’t golfed there, I think, since it was renamed Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course years ago.

A golfer I asked said he didn’t think it was living on the golf course. Though, as Bob pointed out, that seems like paradise..

Mike Repa at Park Bait said nobody seemed to know for sure where it lives.

I would love an answer.

Oh, and a photo would be nice too.
