I went out on my deck this morning to toss to bread out for the ducks. And way off to the left, which I can't see unless I'm on the deck, I noticed something strange:
I don't know when it happened. I don't have any recent pictures of that area I can compare to. But considering how light colored the wood is, it has to have been fairly recent -- no more than a month, and probably only a couple of weeks. It certainly happened long after the county did its trapping.
I like to hear about the beavers; I don't get a chance to see them much in my area. Like you say, they are the engineers of the animal world.
I wonder if your situation is one in which the beaver population (recovering from earlier situation of heavy trapping) is encroaching on suburbia.
It's definitely easier to live with than coyotes moving into suburbia.

I'd talk about them more, but there hasn't been a lot to say since the county killed the last bunch.

I'm a little surprised.

The story I heard was that they were worried about using live traps. The fear was that with the animal in the trap, neighborhood kids would try to pet them and get bitten.
Anyway, I am sure they were killed, not relocated.
