HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 c504W
Mr. Gale

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many of the animals involved in the Ham Fen Beaver Project have died; and what information her Department has collated on the causes of death. [44767]

Mr. Meacher

[holding answer 21 March 2002]: I understand from the Kent Wildlife Trust that two of the beavers in their care have died. The Department does not collect information on the causes of death of animals, other than cats and dogs, once rabies has been ruled out.
