Beaver on the Loose in Wichita Area

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A search is underway in Wichita for a missing beaver.  The Wichita Eagle reports that the beaver, named Chapa, broke out of his cage in the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit at Central Riverside Park.  He's been missing since the early morning hours of Tuesday.  Animal display attendant Connie Storrie has searched miles of the Little Arkansas River for the little orphan she helped rescue three years ago. He was injured when he was found in one of the muddy pools of Chisholm Creek Park.  She describes the beaver as "very shy." She worries about how the beaver will fare in the wild after being coddled for three years on a diet of apples, carrots and sweet potatoes.
