Wonder if they know if something is coming which they should, and therefore, we should be prepared for.


Impressive to say the least, must be a few hundred if not thousand of them there surely. Otherwise that is one hell of a mansion.

Hate to sound like an Albertan red-neck..but we use beaver dams as bridges to get our ATVs and 4x4 across rivers.

Beaver dam can be quite a nuisance...they flood out roads and farms. Beavers also quite destructive..often cutting down large trees and just leaving them there. They can be pests.
