We definitely have a wildlife problem, and it’s affecting our business tremendously. My family comes from a long line of farmers; we raise cattle, chickens, horses, ducks, and a few goats and pigs; and we also grow many vegetables, hay, and alfalfa; all of these things, animals and plants alike, are sustained for the most […]
Living in the country was a downright treat before our beaver problem. When I was little, my grandparents lived about an hour away from town and had a few acres of land and I absolutely loved it. There’s nothing like being able to see all of the stars and smell the dew in the morning. […]
My wife got so sick of my bellyaching about the beaver damage down by the creek, that she kicked me out of the house this morning with my video camera so I could at least record it. It’s just such a shame to have so many trees comin’ down out there. We’ve lived here […]
My friends and I are pretty adventurous, but this last weekend, we got to witness beaver removal firsthand on our weekend adventure. It’s weird, but true.

You farmers think you have beaver problems, try being a trout. I mean, here I am, not bothering anyone, and all of a sudden some beavers come along, build their dam or lodge, and I’m stuck. I’m supposed to be able to swim my normal route, along this cute little stream with a nice rocky […]
Authorities in Martinez, California were surprised at their community’s reaction to their decision to get rid of the beavers that were destroying the local waterway, a portion of Alhambra Creek that ran through the center of the city.
Two beavers had built a dam large enough to divert the waterway in several places, and […]
I can’t believe my Mom asked me, of all people, how to get rid of beavers living on her cabin property. I’m an animal rights activist! Does she not get that? I’m not the kind of activist that breaks into places and releases zoo animals out onto suburban streets or anything, but I […]
A group of families in Oshawa, Ontario Canada had finally had enough of improper beaver removal. They had learned that many beavers were being trapped inhumanely in grotesque metal traps that snapped on their legs. The beavers were left to suffer until they were either freed or died.
The group […]
