Beavers to become protected species in Scotland

河狸将成为苏格兰保护动物

They were extinct for 400 years, but beavers were illegally released in Tayside in the first part of this century.

河狸本已在苏格兰消失了四百年,但在本世纪上半叶,河狸在泰赛德市被非法放生。

Their population has grown rapidly to more than 400 and many farmers have complained about their dams flooding prime agricultural land.

它们的总数量已经快速增长到了 400 多只,而且很多农民已经就河狸筑坝,淹没优质农业用地的问题进行了投诉。

But after ministers decided against a cull, they've now made moves to protect them. That will make it an offence to kill, injure or capture beavers without a licence.

但相关部门大臣决定不允许对它们进行选择性宰杀,并已采取措施保护这个物种。这意味着无执照宰杀、伤害及捕捉河狸将会是一种违法行为。

Farming leaders have said they need to be controlled effectively. Scottish Natural Heritage is expected to publish guidance on how that can be achieved in the coming weeks.

农民代表们说,应有效地控制河狸的数量。预计苏格兰自然遗产署将在接下来的几周内公布如何实现有效控制河狸数量的指导方针。
