FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Park district officials in Fargo will be getting some advice from the Humane Society of the United States about how to handle beavers that are chopping down and killing trees along the Red River.

Dave Pauli with the Humane Society tells KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1LjKqX8 ) he has worked on similar problems for three decades and may have some options for city officials when he visits Fargo next week.

Pauli says a solution is “always complicated.”

The Fargo Park District caused an uproar in April when it announced its plans to trap and kill the beavers. Some residents even started an online petition to convince officials to alter their plans.

Dave Leker with the park district says officials would be willing to test control methods at two parks to see which works best.
