Section of Jordan Lake Reopened Despite Beaver Scare

Posted August 9, 1997

— The Ebenezer Point beach and boat launch at Jordan Lake are open, but the rabies scare may not be over. Saturday, there are more reports of odd acting beavers at Lake Jordan.

A strange acting beaver was shot when it approached a beaver control expert there to study problems with rabid beavers. Two other attacks involving rabid beavers have been reported at the lake this summer.

The park closed last week after a boy was bit while he was swimming.
