    The beaver, a once native mammal in the UK hunted to extinction more than 400 years ago, is making a comeback.

    Last year, the Scottish government ruled that wild beavers living in the southern and western Highlands of Scotland will have protected status.

    But the reintroduction of the beaver population has received both praise and criticism.
