One of our neighbors has a small farm behind our farm and a small spring runs through their property, through ours and on into Sinking Creek. Last year a beaver moved into their part of the stream and they love watching them. Well, now part of their farm has become flooded due to the activity of the beavers and they have raised kits which have moved further down stream to our property which is now flooded. They raised kits and their family moved to the next farm adjoining us. Hubby has been trying to destruct their dams on our property a couple times. Here’s pictures of the dam before the destruction:
They have cleared out a big area of brush and young trees on the neighbors side of the fence to build this home of theirs. On Monday, hubby took the tractor, hip waders and cable with treble hooks down to the dam built on our side of the fence and ripped it all out and the water had receded that had raised to the fourth strand of high tinsel wire.
Hubby called this morning to make sure I made it to work with problems since we had another snowfall during the early morning hours. He had driven down the holler to check on the dam and during the night the entire dam had been rebuilt overnight as well as the smaller one. The destruction continues and they have killed some fruit trees in their habitat building.
And NO, I don’t have a picture of the culprit because they work at night while I sleep and I won’t give up my sleep for a beaver!!
