TransLink is tapping some toothy vandals as the potential culprits, after half a dozen trees were damaged in one of its SkyTrain parking lots.
At least six trees are either in pieces or just lying on the ground throughout the SkyTrain Park and Ride lot at the Scott Road Station in Surrey.
TransLink’s Chris Bryan says it may be four-legged creatures who are responsible…
“There are actually some beavers in the area so we haven’t quite ruled out that they may be involved. But we’ve notified Transit Police so they’re looking into it,” he said.
Bryan says those officers are now reviewing security footage to see if they can spot the big-tailed bandits, and that they’ve also tapped a maintenance worker to investigate.
“He did say there are beavers in the area we haven’t looked, well we can look at the trees themselves to see if they have the beaver markings.”
There is a small waterway beside the parking lot where the beavers may be living.
The iconic Canadian rodent has been making something of an urban comeback in recent years, most recently setting up a high-profile homestead in Vancouver’s Olympic Village.
