"The kits were in critical condition as they were cold, weak and hungry," Megan Lawrence, the director of rehabilitation for Salthaven, told BuzzFeed Canada. "They were only about two days old upon admission and their umbilical cords were still attached."
The hunters had been in the woods near Fort Qu'Appelle when they came upon a trap with a female beaver in it. The hunters knew her babies would not be able to survive on their own. So they scooped them up and drove to Salthaven in the hope that Lawrence's team could save the little ones.
