A FIFTY pound beaver

There was quite a commotion when this 50 poound beaver was brought in on the back of a truck.

A man and his son are trapping beaver and muskrat out of the ponds and beaver dams here on the property. The animals are gaining in number and causing a lot of damage.
Today, they caught a 50 pound beaver. The trapper said that this is the second largest that he has caught. The largest that he has caught is 75 pounds.

Check out those teeth. Beaver teeth never stop growing so they need to gnaw and gnaw to keep them sharp and a reasonable length.

Their back feet are interesting and useful.

Here is a look at the strong tail that pounds the damns into shape.
