My daughter told me this story today. Her father had picked her up from school and was telling her. This happened within the last day or 2. He was driving down the road that passes by one of the beaver habitats when he noticed a large beaver lugging a tree across the road. The tree was not very thick but was as long as the road is wide. When he backed up a bit to get a better look, he accidently stopped the car on top of the tree. The beaver was tugging and yanking (and giving him some dirty looks in the process), trying with all his might to get the tree free. When he noticed that he was on the tree, he moved the car ahead a bit to get off the tree. Just at that moment the beaver, who was still tugging hard, fell into the ditch along with the tree.:lol: :lol: (true story) I wish I had a video of that.

Johanna....an interesting article. The beavers have always been around here, I just didn't have the interest I have now (since joining this forum). You could say, I have a renewed interest in the wildlife and birds, etc., all the things I took for granted before. :D

Not long at all, only a couple of minutes. I am anxious to go back there and to the first place I spotted beavers. These 2 areas are less than 10 mins. from where I live now.

Terrific shots Shiloh :) :) ...have never seen a beaver myself, although there are a couple in a town not too far from S.F....very strange to see them this close to a big city....they've become a tourist attraction :lol: :lol: ...see the link:

Wow Shiloh, what a amazing adventures you have and good thinking to grab your cam when you heard the noise. Now we all can enjoy of the raccoon. The beavers are so great to see, usually we are only told there are beavers, but you never get to see them.
