Rocky, the beaver kit rescued from a boat slip last year, has died of natural causes.  

Oklahoma Aquarium caretakers became concerned Saturday when Rocky refused to eat during the 11:00 feed.

Staff members sought emergency veterinary care, as Rocky’s condition appeared to be deteriorating rapidly.

Unfortunately, efforts to revive Rocky were in vain and he died late Saturday afternoon.
