The aquatic mammal has returned to the Bronx River after being MIA for a year and according to the office press release, he’s apparently a Christian: “José, the first wild beaver to return to the City in at least 200 years, is setting up a new lodge at the Bronx Zoo. He’s even chomped down his own Christmas tree.”
