Alas, poor Beaver! I knew him, Horatio...

There are little clips by each of our doors here which the complex uses sometimes to leave information for us. Just now I found one, and it's a pity.

They hired a trapper to come in a kill the beavers again. This time all the mischief was caused by just two of them.

They did this before; last time it was 3. And this will mean the problems will stop, for a year or two, until the next time a pair of beavers find this branch of the creek system.

Reportedly it wasn't just us who were having problems. It was affecting Center Street, so Oregon Department of Transportation was involved. It was affecting the park, so Tualatin Valley Parks and Recreation was involved. And there's another apartment complex on the far side of the park which was having trouble because of it. (The foundation of one of their buildings was flooded.

It is a shame, but it's understandable.

UPDATE: I also just noticed that they wrapped a couple more of our trees with chicken wire.
