Beavers

The 4-5 acre man-made pond was dug around a stream that ran through the property.  When we bought our house and property, there were two beaver lodges on the pond and the spillway was easy to maintain (kept the pond at a 10-foot level).

Years later the beaver had two more lodges and had even spread to nearby property creating new ponds by damming up other streams.

Here is a short video showing a beaver tail slap as he tries to frighten me away.
