Someone hit this thing last night during the driving rainstorm I suppose.
I had not seen any beaver or evidence of beaver around here for about 15 years. My now deceased neighbor:) didn't like them and had them all trapped out.
This was a big one and had an old injury to his tail which had healed over.







what's the Cat got to do with it? Nothing.

Where there is one, there is 10 more of the SOB’s you don’t see. But you soon see the damage they cause.:mad:

Big varmint....

Not sure what I thought I would see when I opened this thread:confused:
Made me think of the old days and what Randy Dawson might have posted:D
Thought some sort of joke could be involved here.I hope you saved the fur for a hat or something.

In the Canadian fishing camps they don't care for beavers plugging their drain culverts. I watched one work on a stick till it wedged in a three foot pipe under the camp entry road. It wasn't long till the road stated to wash out . That beaver had a bad accident the next day. Mike

I remember them as a kid in the side shows at the circus and fairs. 10 cents to see the worlds largest rat from Asia. I begged Dad to take me in and see it. That was 75 years ago more or less. I suppose some escaped or let go when they didn’t need them anymore.

I recall that Nutria were brought in to eat the Kudzu plants. A few years ago, there was a show on TV about how the Louisiana state police and DNR were using suppressed 10-22s to shoot them along the banks of the levees.

Like most introduced species (ask Australians) they have become a huge pest and are good for nothing. As far as I know there is no market for their fur although I am sure coon asses would eat them. They'll eat anything. :D
