Anybody else got a BEAVER problem???

Anyone else out there have a beaver problem?  I'm telling you, here in the south, we have a HUGE PROBLEM with our beavers.  They are just out of control!

Get your minds out of the gutter!  Not THAT kinda beaver! (Although I had ya going for just a sec didn't I? LMFAO!!!!!)


Apparently we've had quite a time here in NC with them.  We've had some wetland restoration projects going on trying to restore our streams and wetlands and the state has spent upwards of $80,000 removing dams and trapping these poor guys.  In some cases, they say the dams have been so sturdy they've had to hire contractors to come in and blow them up!  DANG! 
The beavers, bless their hearts....are chewing up newly planted trees, and are just causing a real problem for these wetland projects, the little buggers.  Not sure if they're relocating them or what, back in the 19th century the beaver became almost extinct here back when their pelts were big business.  Hopefully that won't become a problem again. 
Beavers.....behave yourselves!!!!

Ohh Beavers... Here in Colorado we have prairie dogs, who happen to be extremely adorable creatures like beavers, and the darn developers gas them so they can build suburban dreams over prairie dog cities.
I like prairie dogs more then I like contractors. You should see them when they have babies and the whole family sits above ground to observe their neighbors and yell at passer byes. They can get as worked up as squirrels. Do beavers get upset and chattery too?
