Jose the Beaver No Longer Alone


For their September issue, Outside Magazine sent a reporter to the Botanical Garden to find and study Jose the beaver, the Bronx's most famous semi-aquatic rodent.

Jose, you'll be pleased to know, is alive and well. And, most exciting of all, he seems to have made a new friend. Not a mate exactly, rather a muskrat - nicknamed Sebastian. The two seem very close and are likely living together. (What would Rev. Diaz say?!)

Here's a Norwood News editorial, written last year, on Jose's decision to set-up home in the Bronx River, and what his arrival says about the borough's resurgence.

Jose, who's named after Congressman Jose E. Serrano, is the first beaver to be seen in New York City in 200 years.
