Beaver bereavement

The ailing beaver that was pulled out of the East River by police scuba units on duty Friday for the pope’s United Nations visit died a day later while being transported upstate for treatment by a wildlife medical specialist.

Dr. Paul Howell, the owner and lead veterinarian at the hospital that treated the animal overnight, Animal General on the Upper West Side, said a vehicle was hired to transport it to the specialist in Utica, but it died en route.
