A local dog is recovering after an encounter yesterday with a beaver near Couse Creek south of Asotin.
Kootenia was spending some time on the Snake River with his family at around 5:00 yesterday afternoon when they discovered the beaver swimming in the water. Kootenia received about about eight lacerations on his groin area and hind legs, according to owner Amber Larreau.
"I would love to give props to Orchards Pet Hospital too. They were so kind and took such good care of Kootenia," she says.
