You’ve got to love a beaver. According to the News and Observer (11-14-05) the pesky little critters are causing a problem for the environmentalists who care for the scenic Eno River – by building dams.
For some reason I don’t pretend to understand this has provoked a ‘dam war’ between the environmentalists and the beavers. The newspaper described – in lurid detail – how environmentalists donned knee high waders and tramped into the Eno River to obliterate two beaver dams.
But you’ve got to give the beavers credit. It turns out they’re more than a match for the environmentalists. The next morning they’d built both dams back.
