Park officials warn of aggressive beavers in Anchorage lake

ANCHORAGE - The situation had gotten so bad between beavers and dogs that parks officials recently posted a sign at University Lake warning of aggressive beavers.

The battles serve as a reminder that living in Anchorage means sharing the city with a menagerie of animals.
