Geronimo The Parachuting Beaver

This morning I read a true story of animals antics that is worthy of any of my Duck and Friends books.  It was about Geronimo, the parachuting beaver. No joke. In 1948, Idaho’s Department of Fish and Game moved some beavers into the backcountry by dropping them out of planes with parachutes, and a beaver named Geronimo was their test pilot… er… rodent. A story this silly deserves a silly retelling and Rob Thornberry of the Idaho Falls Post Register really does the story justice.  You can link to the story here.
