A large Utah oil spill was partially contained thanks to the work of a pack of beavers.

OGDEN, Utah – A pair of young beavers credited for helping keep an oil spill out of Willard Bay are now recovering in the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Ogden.

A Chevron fuel spill was discovered near Willard Bay on Monday afternoon and crews spent the better part of Monday and Tuesday working to repair the broken 8-inch pipeline that caused the spill and the fuel that had spread through the area.

Cleanup crews say a beaver dam helped stop the fuel from reaching Willard Bay, but a pair of beavers were covered in the fuel and sent to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Ogden for cleanup and recovery.

Employees at the center spent six hours bathing the two beavers, washing them twice with Dawn dish detergent. The pair were put on medication to help recover.

The beavers were reported doing a little better on Wednesday. One of the two is still lethargic, nauseated and didn’t have much of an appetite. The second has started moving around and has started eating a bit.

And to think they had moved to Utah from Alaska to escape oil spills \:D

they will spend about 50k each nursing them back to health.. then have a big parade, marching band and the works when they turn them back loose into the wild.. only to watch one of them go down a beaver slide into a 330 conibear...LOL...
about like that time some town nursed a seal back to health.. turned it loose and a killer whale ate it while everyone watched...LOL

I have seen some beavers a few years back that really needed washed in "dawn", sorta smelled like 3 day old catfish, beavers get kinda rough at times, especially when they are wet and its hot outside

That's ok, I'm sure Chevron will be flipping the bill. Sounds like the beavers saved them at least that amount of money in cleanup. \:\)
