BAD BAD Beavers

Okay - now I am seriously ANNOYED at the beavers. We went for a walk to the other side of the lake today and we counted 7 trees that have gnawed all the way around - and many more with patches gnawed out of them.  You can see 6 of them just in this one little area. There is no hope for the trees that have gnawed all the way around - they will die  :( 

Now even though we all know it is really MY park it is technically owned by the city we live in and I am NOT happy they are not doing something to protect the trees. There is actually staff that live at the park and it is also a place RV's can stay. These damaged trees are also going to be a big risk to people and doggies that use the park. Today we found beaver foot prints and the 'runs' as Mom calls them - where you can see where the beaver(s) have been coming and going in and out the water - they are like tunnels in the grass.  Mom has sent these pics to the local TV station in the hope they will show people what is happening over there and start doing something to protect the trees. Hopefully they can catch the beavers and move them somewhere else. It makes Mom sad cause she loves beavers but she loves trees too.

  1. Mommy is scared just looking at those gnawed up tree pictures. Looks dangerous. Hope the tv station does a report on it.

  2. That does look dangerous. We hope the city does something soon. People near us have beaver problems too and if it is on their land they have to pay an arm and a leg to get rid of them. Maybe you could help the city by hunting the beaver! Take care! Lee and Phod

  3. We are very sad about the trees also... BAD BAD BEAVERS for SURE. Now we MUST try and find SOMETHINGY good to say about this...

    So here it is... there will be fewer trees fur SQUIRRELS to run up and TAUNT you from. THAT is a good thingy...
    Darn this just does not seem right... Those beaver should be SLEEPING not CHOMPING down TREES right now.

  4. Beavers aren't all bad. They can actually help the environment. It's unusual that they aren't taking down the tree. Diana

  11. They could at least down the whole tree and not leave it to fall on it's own. Now you all be careful, not just around the trees but around those beavers. They are VERY powerful and can drown a dog in minutes, seconds even.

  12. Wow, that is quite the gnawing. They do a lot of damage. We hope you are all careful there, can't have those big trees falling down on you.

    Hope the TV station can get the city to take some action.

  14. We've certainly heard the phrase busy as a beaver...now we know what it means.

    Those beavers are just getting themselves in TROUBLE. we hope they can find a nice home where chewing some trees won't really matter.

  16. It's so hard for us to imagine such a little critter can damage a big tree in such a short time. Better watch out, guys as their teeth are really sharp!!!
