Missing Beaver Back Home Safe

KSAL StaffApril 13, 2015

Chappa the beaver has returned home to the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit in Wichita after he had been missing for nearly a week.

Director Jim Mason of the Great Plains Nature Center tells the Kansas City Star that Chappa had been found digging along his pen at Central Riverside Park, trying to get back inside on Sunday morning.

Mason says the beaver, described as shy and sensitive, may have become startled and wanted to return home after a loud thunderstorm.

Chappa was taken in by the exhibit after being found injured and orphaned three years ago in one of the muddy pools of Chisholm Creek Park.
